At UHN, we strive to deliver Compassionate Care & Caring. Learn more about the services and supports that are available to you throughout your journey.
Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians,
staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make
the most of our resources.
At the heart of everything we do at UHN are our Healthcare Professionals. Refer a patient to one of our 12 medical programs. Learn more about the resources and opportunities available for professional growth.
University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international
source for discovery, education and patient care.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community
and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.

A collaboration between the
Division of Orthopedics, Arthritis Program (UHN) and
CytoSolve, Inc., a multi-scale molecular systems architecture has been created to provide a comprehensive and integrative molecular systems understanding of human knee osteoarthritis (OA). The architecture is constructed through a supervised bioinformatics process beginning with nearly 20,000 scientific papers curated to a refined set of 5,245 papers from which molecular interactions are extracted. The systems architecture is accessed through an easy-to-use interface to traverse the complexity of knee OA systems biology from tissue to cell to an ensemble of molecular interactions whereby one may discover the particular paper from which an interaction is derived. The systems architecture maintains its currency by enabling the research community to provide feedback that can be reviewed, refereed and incorporated. The architecture provides a framework for developing new educational tools as well as to support research that aims to investigate disease mechanisms, and identify potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of knee OA.
