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.

Thursday, October 7, 2021 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm Online Dr. Daniel Susskind The Future of the Professions in the Age of COVID-19
In this talk, Daniel Susskind will explore the future of the professions in the age of COVID-19. Drawing on his best-selling books, The Future of the Professions (2015; 2017) and A World Without Work (2020; 2021), he will set out two futures for the professions. Both rest on technology. One is reassuringly familiar. It is a more efficient version of what we have today. The other is transformational – a gradual replacement of professionals by increasingly capable systems. In an Internet society, the professions will look remarkably different from today, and we will neither need nor want doctors – or lawyers, teachers, architects, the clergy, consultants, and many others – to work as they did in the 20th century.
Dr. Daniel Susskind is a Fellow in Economics at Oxford University, and a Visiting Professor at King's College London. He is the co-author of the best-selling book, The Future of the Professions (2015) and the author of A World Without Work (2020), described by The New York Times as "required reading for any potential presidential candidate thinking about the economy of the future". His TED Talk, on the future of work, has been viewed more than 1.6 million times.
Previously he worked in various roles in the British Government – in the Prime Minister's Strategy Unit, in the Policy Unit in 10 Downing Street, and in the Cabinet Office. He was a Kennedy Scholar at Harvard University.
