Fully-Affiliated Hospitals/Research Insititues
Nine hospitals in the Greater Toronto Area are fully affiliated with the University of Toronto (U of T). The U of T and all of these hospitals are full members of the Toronto Academic Health Science Network (TAHSN).
In collaboration with the leadership of the fully affiliated hospitals, the U of T Faculty of Medicine has developed Guidelines for administering Hospital-University Named Chairs/Professorships. Holders of these Chairs/Professorships are most often based at one of the fully-affiliated hospital sites. (The funds for these Chairs/Professorships are managed by the relevant hospital Foundation.) The Guidelines should also be used for administering University Named Chairs and Professorships. (The funds for these Chairs/Professorships are managed by U of T.)

A unique feature of the University of Toronto MD Program is its academy structure. Each of our four academies is comprised of clusters of the University’s affiliated hospitals and health care sites. They offer a unique combination of educational settings based on the strengths of their member hospitals while at the same time maintaining a consistent high standard of curriculum delivery.
At the academies, students learn clinical skills, participate in problem-based learning, interprofessional education and conduct research in community-based partner agencies. The academies foster a smaller learning environment within a larger program and provide the hospital-based portions of the curriculum in a supportive, student-focused learning environment.

Admission to the MD Program includes assignment to a specific academy. On occasion an exceptional situation arises when a student may be better served at academy an different from the one to which they were assigned. Further details about academy transfers, including an Academy Transfer Application Form, are available in the MD Program’s Academic Calendar.
