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.

Keeping the heart happy
Toronto Rehab’s Cardiac College provides access to multimedia education curriculum through electronic formats. The program will soon also be available through 22 e-learning modules that provide exercise tips, education and counselling tailored to the patient’s medical needs.
“These e-learning modules will be an especially useful resource for patients at a distance participating in our cardiac rehab program,” says Dr. Oh.
The 13 videos on Cardiac College’s YouTube channel focus specifically on the healthy eating component of cardiac health. Informative, short and available to the general public, these videos are an easily accessible resource for healthy recipes. These were made possible through a generous donation from Longo’s.
Cardiac College’s goal is to improve patient and family education on cardiac health. Cardiac rehabilitation aims to prevent heart events in patients who have already experienced one and to reduce the likelihood of heart events in those who are at a high risk.
“The Cardiac College is a unique and highly collaborative patient education platform that was developed by specialists in patient and family education,” explains Dr. Oh. “Evaluations of the program have demonstrated that participants significantly gain knowledge, make positive changes in behaviour, and achieve improved clinical outcomes through this program.”
