Vice-Provost, Relations with Health Care Institutions

As Vice-Provost, Relations with Health Care Institutions, Dean Trevor Young leads the university’s outreach, coordination and relationship-building within Toronto’s vibrant hub of biomedical research, drug development, health education, health policy and clinical care.

That hub centres on the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network (TAHSN) – nine teaching hospitals fully affiliated with U of T and four associate member institutions – and extends to another 20 community-affiliated hospitals and healthcare sites in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.

As Vice-Provost, Dean Young represents the University on the Council of Ontario Faculties of Medicine. He reports to the President of the University on inter-institutional matters and to the Provost on academic matters affecting the health science divisions in their relations with hospitals and other healthcare sites.

The Council of Health Sciences – consisting of the Deans and other representatives of the seven health science Faculties at U of T – provides Dean Young with the context needed to represent the interests of the health science Faculties to hospitals and other healthcare sites.
