The Learner Assistance section is intended as a quick reference for UHN Clinical Learners who need personal assistance (including assistance related to an urgent or crisis situation).
If immediate UHN security assistance is necessary, please activate the appropriate UHN emergency code (dial ext. 5555) or
If you are having a personal crisis, know that you are not alone and there are many people and places that can help. If your health or safety, or the health or safety of someone else is at risk, please activate a
UHN emergency code, call 911 and/or seek medical attention right away as appropriate.
In addition to contacting your own educational institution and/or professional associations (as appropriate) for help, you may want to reach out to someone at UHN. Should you experience a challenging situation with your placement, the hospital, your supervisor or another student at UHN, please contact a UHN Clinical Education Leader during regular business hours. Please select the most appropriate contact from the list below.

UHN is a respectful, caring, and inclusive workplace. If you require accommodation, please be aware this is a collaborative process between your academic site, yourself and UHN. Please contact your academic institution’s placement coordinator to facilitate the process.
In addition to supports that may be available from your own school, this section provides information and links to UHN resources that may be helpful (please note, these Intranet links are only accessible from a UHN campus, and do not connect you directly to assistance).
