The Department of Medicine is one of the oldest and largest in North America, with approximately 550 postgraduate residents and fellows in its five specialty and 14 subspecialty training programs. Educating a new generation of clinical leaders is central to the overall mission of the Department of Medicine, with more than one-third of Canada's, and half of Ontario's, internal medicine specialists having trained here.
The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto is the largest research entity in Canada, and one of the largest in North America, with award-winning faculty members on staff. We are a research and education powerhouse - offering tremendous opportunities for collaborative and innovative interdisciplinary research, teaching and scholarship as well as the excitement of working with the diverse populations of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area.
