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 Soham & Shaila Ajmera Family Transplant Centre offers a wide range of educational opportunities for nurses working in transplantation:
Following a 2-week general hospital orientation, new staff within the Soham & Shaila Ajmera Family Transplant Centre begin a week-long orientation program to the field and practice of transplantation. Organized by our program's Advanced Practice Nurse Educator, this intensive program familiarizes new staff with the key concepts of transplant care and introduces them to the wide range of members within the health care team.
Each staff nurse will be assigned a designated preceptor for the duration of their clinical orientation period on our inpatient unit. These designated nurses will have completed a hospital preceptorship program and are chosen for their clinical expertise, teaching and mentoring abilities.
The Soham & Shaila Ajmera Family Transplant Centre is unique in its comprehensive range of transplant services. Care is provided throughout the continuum of transplantation, and therefore offers unique learning opportunities for students in undergraduate and graduate programs.
Students in undergraduate and graduate nursing education who are interested in a placement within the Soham & Shaila Ajmera Family Transplant Centre must present evidence of high academic and clinical achievement.

In addition to this program, nursing students in their final year of undergraduate studies may apply for a clinical placement on our inpatient unit.
Nursing – Graduate
Graduate-level clinical experiences can be specifically designed to meet a student's objectives and learning needs, encompassing a wide range of clinical settings and patient populations for both master's degree and Nurse Practitioner students.
Nurses from many international centres have come to observe and study the approach and practice of transplant nursing within the Soham & Shaila Ajmera Family Transplant Centre. Each placement is planned to meet the needs of the individual practitioner, and the program offers a wide range of observational and clinical experiences for visiting colleagues.
