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.

Ways You Can Help
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.

Last week, we published a round-up of medical-themed books to keep you busy through the holidays (and well beyond!). We've got a few more below, submitted by our staff and Twitter followers. Between the two lists, we suspect you'll be busy until next year!Bathsheba's Breast: Women, Cancer and HistoryJames S. OlsonSuggested by Dr. Alexandra Easson, PMH: "It is a very readable history of the impact and management of breast cancer. Very interesting."The Making of a SurgeonDr. William Nolan
Suggested by Dr. Fateh Bazerbachi, Multi-Organ Transplant Program, TGH: "one of the best surgery memoirs I have ever read. I highly recommend it to be on the list."
