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.

Saturday, Sept. 10 was World Suicide Prevention Day, a time to both remember those we have lost and think about how we can be there for people who are struggling. Every year, more than 700,000 people die by suicide, according to the World Health Organization, and many more will attempt suicide or face suicidal ideation. As healthcare professionals, we know that there is help and hope for those struggling with serious mental-health challenges and that we must all do our part to remove the stigma around seeking treatment. I'm happy to see that, next year, a new three-digit,
988 number will come to Canada so that those in need can call or text to receive immediate suicide prevention intervention. In the meantime, those experiencing mental-health crises can call Talk Suicide Canada by dialing 1-833-456-4566. I'm proud that UHN has Canada's largest medical psychiatry program and remains a leader in mental health research. UHN's
Centre for Mental Health is committed to integrating mental and physical health in the treatment of patients and offers a range of mental health resources for TeamUHN members, including the
UHN CARES program (Corporate Intranet > COVID-19 Preparedness > Mental Health Supports) that offers counselling and support services and useful resources. If you are struggling, please know that you are never alone and there is always help available.

A study from The Institute for Education Research (TIER) at UHN suggests a different healthcare educational strategy could perform as well as the so-called "mastery learning" teaching model while requiring fewer resources. "Mastery learning" involves guided teaching and testing from an instructor, the most common instructional approach. As Dr. Ryan Brydges, an affiliate scientist at TIER
told UHN News, this strategy "requires a significant investment in time, consumables and human resources." The study found that the underused teaching method of "invent and problem-solve, followed by instruction" – an approach that lets students experiment and fail before receiving formal instruction – is comparable for acquiring skills and preparation for future learning.
