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.
The Newsroom is the source for media looking for information about UHN or trying to connect with one of our experts for an interview. It’s also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases, podcasts and more.
Foot problems affect over half the population. Prevention, assessment, and treatment require expertise and practical skills. Podiatrists/chiropodists undergo extensive training to meet these requirements. Many have taken 7 or 8 years of post-secondary training before beginning practice.
A Bachelors Degree, plus a 3-4 year Chiropody / Podiatry Program is generally undertaken in North America. Presently, The Michener Institute of Education at UHN, has the only Canadian Chiropody Program, and there are 9 accredited American podiatric medical schools. They are the only regulated foot professionals educated exclusively in the assessment and treatment of foot disorders.
Chiropody at The Michener Institute of Education at UHN
The Michener Institute offers a full-time, three-year Graduate Advanced Diploma of Health Sciences in Chiropody. It is the only English-speaking Chiropody program in Canada, and has a working Chiropody Clinic on campus for students to treat patients under the supervision of licensed Chiropodists and Michener faculty. Many graduates find rewarding work in public community health centres, hospitals or even open their own private practices. They also work with many different healthcare professionals such as nurses, dermatologists, vascular surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, physiotherapists and physicians.
