A unique learning experience you can’t find in downtown sites…

  • Students get ‘hands-on’ experiences
  • Students are NOT the bottom of the totem pole as they work closely with the faculty
  • Fewer medical learners around
  • 1-on-1 teaching from award-winning preceptors
  • Warm and friendly learning environment

High volume guarantees student exposure…

  • A very active Emergency Department – – 67,000 annual visits
  • Over 20,000 inpatients + 220,000 outpatients annually
  • Over 3,500 babies delivered annually

The community hospital in the city…

  • A major community teaching hospital affiliated with UofT
  • Currently serving over half a million people living in East Toronto
  • Includes the eclectic neighborhoods of Greektown and The Beach
  • Diverse population that provides a culturally rich interaction
  • Growing population of young families resulting in an active pediatrics and obstetrics experience

Its not as far “East” as you think…

  • Conveniently located east of the downtown core
  • 5 min walk or 2 min bus ride from the Danforth subway line (Coxwell Station)
