Welcome to medical education

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre has a special role in preparing the health care providers of the future.

We teach undergraduate and postgraduate students from University of Toronto and from universities across Canada and abroad. We are one of ten Toronto teaching hospitals fully affiliated with the university and Sunnybrook is the base teaching hospital for the Peters-Boyd Academy, one of three academies in the Faculty of Medicine at University of Toronto.

Each year more than 2,600 students look to Sunnybrook for their education, and more than 700 clinical learners are in training on-site at any given time.

Sunnybrook has an extraordinary approach to teaching. We integrate medical students and other health care students, such as pharmacy students, as members of the same patient-care team allowing the group to enhance their understanding of each profession and build on a sound teamwork philosophy.

Sunnybrook is building on the academic strengths of the founding organizations to live up to the mission of an academic centre of excellence.
