The University of Toronto (U of T) and several of its Faculty of Medicine programs were recently ranked within the top 10 in the world according to the U.S. News & World Report global university rankings. Its oncology program was ranked third, while its surgery and clinical medicine programs were both ranked fourth overall.
North York General Hospital (NYGH) is proud to partner with U of T, as well as 36 other academic institutions, to prepare future physicians, nurses and other health care professionals to provide essential care in a community hospital setting.
“Our commitment to teaching and learning is a core part of our culture at North York General,” says Dr. Joshua Tepper, NYGH President and CEO. “Providing excellent patient care goes hand-in-hand with having health care professionals who are dedicated to training the next generation of physicians, nurses and allied health care providers.”
NYGH is home to four core clerkship programs and we offer a site for core rotations to 22 different University of Toronto residency programs. Over 300 North York General physicians have faculty appointments at the University of Toronto. Each year, 1,200 nursing students come here to learn and develop their clinical skills.
“North York General is consistently listed as one of the top choices for training by U of T surgical residents,” says Dr. Lloyd Smith, Chief of Surgery at NYGH. “We value the opportunity to teach and learn from the best and brightest students in the health care field and our patients benefit greatly from this partnership.”
