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.
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.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. Learn more about the services, programs and amenities offered at each location.

UHN Competencies for Teaching (available to UHN only)
These competencies (adapted from the Competencies for Training and Development Professionals© as the model and reference standard of practice for workplace learning and development professionals) were designed to support development of and building on the foundational knowledge, attitudes and skills needed for teaching at UHN. This model defines competency as "a cluster of interrelated knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary for performing effectively in a particular area." These competencies can guide anyone engaged in teaching to reflect on one’s own educational development and be used as a resource to support the UHN Performance Enhancement System process.
