University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. 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

Research is "fundamental" to this organization.
With that, President and CEO, Dr. Peter Pisters, opened the first of three town hall sessions focusing on research and innovation within UHN and beyond.
"Our impact – the stage that we operate on – is global," he explained.
Dr. Pisters took an overflow crowd through the success of research in Canada and Ontario, some of the challenges research faces, and where opportunities lie.
Then, he fielded questions from the audience.
"None of us really imagined that we would have this many people here," Dr. Pisters said, delighted by the large crowd. "But I think this is a reflection of the commitment all of us have to being a research hospital and how we're going drive transformation, innovation, science and research forward - together."
This was the first of three town hall meetings to take place about research and innovation at UHN.
The series of meetings presents an opportunity for UHN staff to share their ideas about the future of research at UHN. Each employee is encouraged to attend.
The next two town halls will be held at:
"We're on a shared process of organizational renewal," Dr. Pisters said. "And that process has in part been driven by…positioning science, research and innovation in a place where we can have shared conversations and where we can have a team that's driving these initiatives forward."
This series of meetings, he explained, is one way UHN will fuel this shared process.
