University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
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.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community
and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.
The Newsroom is the source for media looking for information about UHN or trying to connect with one
of our experts for an interview. It's also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases,
podcasts and more.
Last week, UHN launched an updated External Observer Policy and application process for Observerships. Our staff, physicians and surgeons facilitate thousands of Observerships each year, allowing Observers from outside of UHN access to UHN's clinical areas to observe examinations, procedures or other activities for the purpose of education, credentialing or surveillance.
While Observerships provide invaluable learning experiences, as well as reinforcing our reputation as a global leader in healthcare, it is important that UHN has appropriate "traffic control" mechanisms to ensure that we respect our patients' privacy and the effective delivery of care.
Several staff from across our sites and programs were consulted in the development of the updated Policy. A new website has been created to guide applicants through the new application process and this site can be accessed at http://www.uhn.ca/Health_Professionals/Observership/index.asp. If you have any questions, please contact our Observer Coordinator, Kathy Diniz.
Thank-you for doing your part to ensure that all of our potential Observers apply through our new process and go on to have an excellent learning experience at UHN.
