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.
The Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) group strongly supports the continuing professional development of staff members. We support our staff by encouraging attendance at conferences, meetings and other events. UHN also provides a range of educational opportunities to develop skills, for example research courses, leadership courses, career development courses and more.
SLPs are also involved in a wide variety of educational events. Some of these include:
UHN International Dysphagia Interest Group meets to learn and share
knowledge in the area of swallowing
and swallowing disorders. Quarterly sessions are organized through Zoom,
where clinicians and researchers from across the globe volunteer to
present on a topic of their choice. For questions or to be added to the
distribution list please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some UHN SLPs are involved in knowledge translation projects (Continued Professional Development Projects) related to specific areas of clinical interest. Recent projects have included the development of a care pathway for spinal cord patients and standardizing procedures during video-fluoroscopic swallow studies.
SLPs at UHN are community leaders in the field of clinical education. We are an accredited teaching organization. We maintain a strong relationship with the Department of Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Toronto so that our SLPs can take part in many aspects of the graduate students' curriculum.
We provide over 24 student placements per year. Students from other universities are also eligible to be placed at UHN, though U of T students have first priority.
SLP educators at UHN are supported by various educational opportunities. Completing online clinical educator training modules is encouraged. Clinical educators and students are supported by the SLP student fieldwork coordinator at UHN. Exceptional clinical educators and groups are eligible to be nominated for teaching awards, including the Wightman-Berris Medical Academy Awards. Internal awards may be given for outstanding clinical supervision and excellence in clinical education.
