Anchored in the Temerty Faculty of Medicine at U of T, the Department of Medicine is one of the oldest departments of its kind in North America, dating back to the founding of the School of Medicine in 1843. Now, the Department of Medicine is one of the largest in North America, with 800 full-time faculty members and 550 postgraduate trainees located across hospitals and clinical practice sites across the Greater Toronto Area. One third of Canada’s and one half of Ontario’s internal medicine specialists received their training here.
We are a research powerhouse that generates new knowledge with the goal of meaningfully impacting internal medicine training and the care and health outcomes of patients and their families. A commitment to equity, diversity and professionalism, and a philosophy of innovation, creativity and continuous quality improvement, informs everything the we do.
