Education at UHN

Education Affiliations

University Health Network provides education to health professionals and students through our affiliations with many institutions of higher learning. Our principal affiliation is with University of Toronto; however, we have formal teaching arrangements with over 40 institutions. At UHN we train over 3,000 students per year. Sixty-three percent of these are medical trainees. The next largest group by numbers is nursing accounting for 20%. We train students in virtually every health care profession from chaplaincy to pharmacy to medical engineering. On every ward in every outpatient clinic and in every laboratory one can find students learning the science and art of their future profession.
