Return to Campus Fall 2021

At Temerty Medicine we recognize how challenging and stressful the pandemic has been – and continues to be – for so many across our community. Please know that our commitment to health and wellbeing remains paramount and we will strive to communicate frequently and clearly, as new information becomes available.

All faculty and staff at Temerty Medicine will not be expected to return to work on campus in early September. Most will experience a gradual return-to-work in the months ahead, subject to the Province of Ontario reopening regulations and the University of Toronto’s guidelines. Within the University framework, each Faculty retains a degree of local decision-making to suit its needs.

We recognize there are diverse needs across Temerty Medicine’s dozens of distributed departments and units. Business officers and managers will be contacting their staff groups regarding work arrangements during the 2021-22 academic year.

Regarding learners, detailed updates are being sent directly to student cohorts in our undergraduate Medical Education Programs (MD, MRS, PA).

Graduate students should consult their programs/departments for details.

Rehabilitation Sciences Programs will continue with a hybrid learning model with clinical skills training occurring in-person. Students should consult their programs/departments for details.
