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.

Autopsy Services »
The Cytopathology Department diagnoses diseases on a cellular level. We typically support the diagnosis of cancer.
The Electron Microscopy Department uses ultrastructural analysis of cells and microorganisms by Transmission Electron Microscope. High-resolution digitized images are captured and ultrastructural measurements are made for the diagnosis of diseases with ultrastructural footprint.
The Histopathology Department performs a wide range of histological techniques including processing, embedding and staining of tissue sections for initial diagnosis. Special stains demonstrate microorganisms, certain cell types and special structures in tissue. Enzyme histochemistry is used for diagnosis of neuromuscular diseases.
The Immunopathology Department performs immunohistochemical assays, both diagnostic and predictive, which help UHN Pathologists and oncologists plan the best personalized patient treatment options. Our laboratory uses state-of-the-art platforms, enabling implementation of rare assays. Specialized Immunofluorescence studies focusing on kidney and skin biopsies are performed and used by UHN renal pathologists and dermatopathologists.
Surgical Pathology receives and evaluates all tissue specimens collected from across the hospital and consult material from other hospitals.
Our team of pathologists' assistants, with support from pathologists, handle, dissect and sample the specimens received in the Surgical Pathology lab as well as LMP's Autopsy Services. After microscopic review, a diagnosis is made by a pathologist and shared with a physician.
