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.

The Toronto General Hospital Department of Anesthesia and Pain Management continues to take on a significant role in Undergraduate Education at the University of Toronto and is involved in all four years of the medical curriculum.
The medical student rotations are comprised of 6 blocks, which span the entire calendar year. Each block has two, 2-week rotations. Each block ends with a written exam. Anesthesia Residents and Fellows act as educators and mentors to medical students.
The teaching program offers a formal simulated Intravenous (IV) and airway teaching session. Students have an opportunity to learn and practice these skills, in simulation, at the beginning of their rotations.
Medical Students work on a daily, one-to-one basis with a staff anesthesiologist or Fellow. They are exposed to inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures, using both general and regional anesthetics. Students also perform pre-operative assessments in our
Preadmission Clinics and also participate in
Acute Pain Service rounds.
During their rotation, students have the opportunity to gain experience in several basic technical skills, including:
The clinical experience is complemented by one day of simulation training in the management of anesthesia-related emergencies, and four classroom seminars on topics ranging from airway management to obstetric anesthesia and pain management. These sessions are centrally organized by the Department of Anesthesia at the University of Toronto.
