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.
Occupational therapists (OT) are involved in a wide variety of research at UHN. For example, OTs were involved in a multi-site international project that examined time spent working on various interventions for clients with traumatic brain injury and outcomes (Dr. Nora Cullen, researcher, Toronto Rehab).
OTs have also been involved with a nephrologist focusing on the geriatric populations and the complex issues these clients face with renal and/or dialysis related issues (Dr. Vanita Jassal and OT Janine Farragher). Another example is the work of OTs on the transplant team focusing on the complex issues of return to work after an organ transplant (OT Naz Nour).
OTs are also involved as consultants to research teams. Groups of OTs have been involved in the development of a therapeutic robot (Dr. Alex Mihailidis, researcher, Toronto Rehab).
Each year therapists supervise student research projects to examine questions of interest to our practice or to evaluate outcomes, such as the evaluation of the occupational therapy role on the oncology program at the Toronto Rehab - University Centre (Jennifer Soong, Young-En Russell, Haidee Law, Margaret Liu, Stacey Marshall and Debbie Hebert, OT researchers, Toronto Rehab).
As well, we have several researchers at UHN who are occupational therapists. Angela Colantonio holds the Saunderson Family Chair in acquired brain injury and has worked for 15 years examining the prolonged consequences of acquired brain injury.
