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.

TThe Laboratory Medicine Program (LMP) at UHN is the largest hospital diagnostic lab in Canada and embarks on a wide range of activities beyond clinical diagnostics. LMP is involved in all facets of research at UHN, from supporting other UHN Principal Investigators (PIs) through service work to conducting its own studies.
All members of this Program are involved with research projects, the development of new laboratory tests and services and translating research into clinical practice. As part of our team’s ongoing research and academics, our members regularly present their material at conferences, symposiums, and as platform presentations or scientific poster presentations.
Our LMP medical staff publishes in peer-reviewed scientific journals, including high impact journals, as well as other publications. Our team publishes more than 500 PubMed-listed publications per year.
With its wide breath of expertise and infrastructure, LMP also offers their services to external parties seeking laboratory services and/collaborations. Ranging from simple fee-for-service activities to co-development partnerships, the LMP strives to help advance research and innovation across the entire healthcare ecosystem.
The program is supported by the
LMP Research Office that helps with administration of services for clinical trials and other non-clinical activities at LMP.
In the spirit of innovation and collaboration, LMP provides healthcare system and research stakeholders with the necessary support to validate new analytic methods whether it is related to laboratory-developed tests, or applications for Health Canada approval. The Laboratory Medicine Program at UHN is known for its appropriate and comprehensive diagnostic, therapeutic and consultative services that are of the highest quality and credibility.
As stakeholders of the Canadian healthcare system seek to bring their analytic or diagnostic tests and services to market, the Laboratory Medicine Program at UHN will be a key enabler in supporting the delivery to its Canadian clients.
The majority of services performed by the LMP for clinical use is also available to internal and external partners to support their research and innovation needs. For a list of tests that are regularly performed at LMP, visit the Lab Test Catalogue. Our clinical laboratories also offer tests unique for research work only, and can develop special tests and assays for their clients. Examples include:
