As a fully affiliated teaching hospital of the University of Toronto, the Department of Supportive Care (DSC) professional staff have a strong track record in clinical and academic supervision in areas such as psychiatry, palliative care, nursing oncology, physiotherapy and social work. Many of these staff also hold faculty positions at the University of Toronto. Our interprofessional team provides outstanding educational programs for learners at various levels including fellows, residents, graduate students, medical students, summer students and observers. We have fellowships in all of our medical specialty disciplines and residents from all programs routinely rotate through our site as part of their more general oncology training in medical, radiation and surgical oncology.
