Creating healthy change with our bold new School of Medicine

We believe change starts with education. That’s why we’re tackling the healthcare gaps facing our communities by introducing a bold new medical school.

At our School of Medicine, we will shape future-ready doctors who are dedicated to delivering primary care to those who need it most. Doctors from our communities who will work with our communities to improve health and wellbeing. And doctors who, through our pillars, or guiding principles, will advance our shared vision to build a healthier, more equitable world.

Our timeline

What started as a vision is quickly becoming a reality. In summer 2025, our new School of Medicine in Brampton will officially open its doors to learners in our residency programs; MD students will follow in September 2025, pending successful preliminary accreditation by the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools.

The timeline below outlines some key dates that have defined our journey to date—and some milestones will shape our future.
