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.

Three radiological technology students at the Michener Institute of Education at UHN recently took advantage of a unique experiential learning opportunity by taking X-ray images during a cadaver lab. This three-hour lab was part of an orthopedic ankle surgery course hosted by Smith + Nephew (S&N) – a British multinational medical equipment manufacturing company – in the Temerty Advanced Surgical Education & Simulation Centre. Students Tian Hua, Stephanie Olson, and Adam Magliozzi used a C-Arm X-ray machine, a medical imaging device with a C-shaped arm that can move around the body, to capture images of the ankle cadaver. "At my first clinical placement, we didn't have a lot of opportunity to see the operating room, so I found it really interesting to see how different professions worked together and especially how my profession ties into everyone else's," Stephanie told UHN News. Education is a core pillar of what we do at UHN and it is fantastic to see our learners push themselves.

Researchers at UHN's Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute (DKJEI) analyzed protein interactions associated with autism in an attempt to understand what causes the neurodevelopmental condition. The study involved mapping protein networks in brain cells to shed light on how genes related to autism spectrum disorder interact with one another. "A unique element of this study is that we used proteomics – the large-scale study of the structure and function of proteins – to determine if and how risk genes converge onto shared molecular pathways in neurons," says Dr. Karun Singh, the senior author of the study and a Senior Scientist at DKJEI. Autism affects one in 50 Canadian children and youth, and can lead to challenges with learning, social interactions, and communication. Read more about this research at UHN News. Read the
