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.

UHNWomen is a program to help empower and further uplift TeamUHN and A Healthier World. Women face unique gender-based challenges that span across a wide spectrum. An uplifted culture inspiring and generating interpersonal and organizational support, openness, resources, partnership, multi-directional learning and mentorship, and more, will improve outcomes for all, including staff and patients across all career levels.
Creation of a multi-year strategic plan is needed to re-launch and establish UHNWomen and draw on opportunities to align with numerous resources in research, education, skills-building, networking, both internally to UHN and externally.
Equal opportunity for all.
With the guidance of the UHNWomen Steering Committee, UHN is currently embarking on a strategic planning process. Goals include defining the multi-year strategic vision and priorities for UHNWomen, and developing short- and long-term implementation plan with the execution of early, visible initiatives. Stay tuned.

Inclusive: True progress cannot be made unless all are welcome to learn and teach.
Intersectional: We recognize the intersection of race, gender and other forms of diversity.
Measured: We don’t have all the answers. But we will test and evaluate our hypotheses — and evolve accordingly. We also take an intentional, data-driven approach.
Value at all levels: We commit to supporting a great experience for all those engaged, at all staff levels. Two-way teaching, learning, and fulfillment are a must.
Grassroots: This program started as an employee-led initiative and we will continue to uphold the program’s self-starting, nimble and entrepreneurial spirit.
UHNWomen is embarking on a strategic planning process which will be guided by an interdisciplinary Steering Committee.

Questions or suggestions?
Create additional events/program models for targeted audiences (e.g. women in science). Using technology, deliver sustainable, accessible and low-friction opportunities to amplify the reach of program mentors.
Help UHN centralize all the amazing women’s empowerment work that is happening. Build connections and prevent siloed approaches.
In 2018 and 2019, UHN co-hosted International Women’s Day panel events in partnership with JLABS, Johnson & Johnson’s incubator. Both events sold out and post-event survey feedback identified mentorship gaps in the health space. This feedback prompted the creation of UHNWomen.
