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.

See the full membership on UHN.ca. The last ELF meeting was held on January 22, 2022.
Congratulations to Carol Miners on her retirement after 40 wonderful years at UHN! Carol started at Toronto General in 1981 as a staff nurse in the TG Operating Rooms where, after rotations in all services, cardiac became her passion. She has never looked back and went on to specialize in the cardiac ORs for all 40 years. She had a keen interest in pacemakers and ventricular assist devices, and has educated many of her peers and colleagues through presentations and hands-on experience. Carol was always focused on quality patient care and has supported a multitude of new learners that have joined the TG OR team. Her presence, passion, and advocacy will be dearly missed.
Tomorrow marks the start of Heart Month – an annual reminder of the importance of cardiovascular health, and an opportunity to celebrate our team at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre for their dedication to those living with heart and vascular disease. Join the PMCC on social media for stories of perseverance, medical innovation, and life-saving collaborations, as well as a look back at some of the moments that established the PMCC as a world leader in cardiovascular care.
World Cancer Day is on Friday, Feb. 4. The theme for this year is "Close the Care Gap" which is about recognising the inequities in cancer care around the globe. The goal of the campaign is to move towards equitable access to cancer treatment and care for all. Thanks to everyone on TeamUHN for advancing world-class cancer care, research, and education and elevating access to care. Special shout out to our Radiation Medicine Program at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre for creating the Case Expert Model, which is a person-centred approach to radiation therapy. A patient is partnered with an individual radiation therapist (RT), who provides support and performs all rounds of radiotherapy, serving as the primary point of contact. It increases efficiency by eliminating transitions among different RTs as happens in standard practice. It has led to greater rapport between patients and RTs and increased responsiveness from patients and their families. The model was recently honoured with a Local Impact Award and aligns with UHN's vision of A Healthier World.

The first concert opens on February 7, 2022 and will be available for seven days at any time. Concert details and registration information will be available in an all-user today.
