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.

With the Labour Day weekend in the rearview mirror and the air becoming more cool and crisp, it's really beginning to feel like Fall. September is such an exciting time, with students heading back to school, the leaves starting to change colours, and the Blue Jays in the pennant race towards the world series (Go Jays!). Here at UHN we have a lot of exciting things happening this month, including some new faces.
Welcoming Mike Nader to UHN
Today is an exciting one here at UHN, as Mike Nader is officially taking over the role of Executive Vice President, Clinical Operations. He has been busy learning about the 'ins and outs' of UHN since the
announcement went out in late May and I know he's excited to get started, just as we're all excited to have him here. Over the next few weeks, he will be spending time at all of our different sites so if you see him in the hall, please say hello! When I started I truly appreciated the warm welcome I received and it helped me get to know the great people who make up UHN. Please join me in welcoming Mike and his family to Toronto and UHN.
Congratulations to Dr. Brian Hodges
Last week another member of UHN's Executive Team received very exciting news. The Karolinska Institutet announced that Dr. Brian Hodges, EVP Education, will receive their prestigious
Prize for Research in Medical Education.
This is one of the most esteemed prizes in the world. It's aimed at acknowledging and promoting quality research and long-term education improvements in medical practice, a field where Brian truly excels. His research into the use of simulation for advanced communication skills has led to the development of the first psychiatry objective structured clinical examination (OSCE), which has changed the way educators around the world train and assess health care professionals. Brian plans to use the prize money to support graduate fellows at the Wilson Centre, one of UHN's education centres of excellence, and faculty at the Black Lion Hospital who are completing the first Masters of Health Sciences Education in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. These two institutions are very dear to Brian.
We are so proud of the work Brian does and it's wonderful to see him getting recognition from around the world.
