The pharmacy department conducts pharmacist-led research and supports medication-based clinical trials throughout UHN. A joint UHN-University of Toronto pharmacy clinician scientist program has a central focus on advancing research as well as academic teaching and patient care. As well, pharmacy residents and students are actively involved in research-based activities.
Pharmacy staff are also actively involved with the development of research protocols, research grant submissions, oral and poster research presentations and peer-reviewed manuscript publications. The department regularly benchmarks against local, national and international pharmacy departments for publications and highly cited papers.
