What Makes Us Special

​​​​​​​​​​​Our Experience

Our program has played a key role in improving care for people with osteoporosis. Many members of our staff have won local, provincial, and national awards for excellence in clinical care, academic teaching and research.

Our team at the Osteoporosis Program has also helped develop guidelines and policies for osteoporosis care in Canada and North America. We work closely with fracture clinics, other osteoporosis programs across the country, Osteoporosis Canada, and the Ontario Ministry of Health to improve the care of individuals with osteoporosis.

Our Research

Our research team of clinical epidemiologists, researchers, physicians, nurses, graduate students and medical students are committed to finding better methods of treating and preventing bone loss and fractures. Our research team has also played a key role in the development of guidelines a​nd policies for osteoporosis care in Canada and North America, including the 2010 Osteoporosis Canada guidelines, the 2012 Canadian Association of Radiologists guidelines, and the 2010 and 2012 American Society of Bone and Mineral Research Task Force for recommendations on femur fractures.
