Celebrating Our Newest Health Leaders

Tomorrow – Thursday, November 18th – at noon, we will celebrate the most recent graduates of the Temerty Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto. The COVID-19 pandemic again necessitates a virtual ceremony, but the honour bestowed upon our graduates and the pride we feel in their accomplishments are not diminished or lessened. I hope you will join me – and their family, friends, and faculty – in cheering on our newest alumni. 

Giving Back

The impact of donor support begins by enhancing the work of our clinicians, researchers and trainees but then resonates throughout the health-care system and ultimately serves to improve human health.
