Choosing the University of Toronto to complete undergraduate training in medicine means that students have access to learn in clinical facilities with outstanding reputations as academic health science centres and exemplary patient care delivery for the communities they serve. As one of the St. George Campus Medical Academies, the Wightman-Berris provides students a unique breadth of clinical experiences and an opportunity to learn in institutions with international stature in clinical programs, education and research. During Clerkship students have a number of sites from which they can choose to do their rotations.
The anchor hospitals of the Wightman-Berris Academy have very active ambulatory and inpatient services in medicine, surgery, oncology, obstetrics and gynaecology and numerous tertiary speciality programs.
Mount Sinai Hospital and the University Health Network (Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital and Toronto Rehabilitation Institute) are clinical and research facilities that offer highly rated educational experiences to students in all years of training. Students will be placed at these hospitals for many of their clinical rotations and will participate in multidisciplinary clinical teams that strive for excellence in patient care, research and education.
In addition to the UHN and MSH, the WB Academy is affiliated with Community and Specialty Hospitals: Baycrest, Humber River Regional Hospital, and Toronto East General Hospitals and is strongly supported in its educational mission by the Specialty Hospitals: the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and the Hospital for Sick Children.
