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

This week is Resident Doctors Awareness Week, a national celebration where we can all recognize and thank the remarkable contributions that medical residents and clinical fellows make to UHN patients, staff, learners, and many more as they work and learn across UHN. As postgraduate medical learners registered with the University of Toronto, medical residents and clinical fellows are essential members of our teams across UHN. More than 1,500 medical residents and 700 clinical fellows from around the world contribute to patient care at UHN. In addition to their scheduled tasks, many of these learners have generously come forward to be redeployed across UHN during recent staffing shortages. Please take a moment to celebrate and thank our exceptional colleagues! For more information, check out these 10 fast facts and feel free to contact the UHN Postgraduate Medical Education Director, Dr. Ahmed Al-Awamer.

If the candidate you refer is hired, you will receive a $2,000 reward split two ways: $1,000 when the new employee starts, and $1,000 on the one-year anniversary of that employee's hire date. For more information, visit the People & Culture page. (Corporate Intranet > Departments > People & Culture > Employee Referral Program)
