About the School of Medicine
Toronto Metropolitan University believes it can offer a new approach to medical education in Ontario — one that draws on the university’s commitment to community, diversity and inclusion, and innovation to address the changing needs for health care delivery and practice.
Building on the strength and foundation of deep and broad community and industry partnerships, Toronto Metropolitan University is ideally situated to shape the future of health care. The university’s new approach to medical education will meet the current pain points in the healthcare system, which have been exacerbated by the global pandemic.
As TMU’s primary clinical partner, William Osler Health System (Osler) (external link, opens in new window) will support the school of medicine in providing the clinical learning environment for undergraduate medical education, other health professionals’ education, residency training and professional development.
The School of Medicine is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities across Ontario and Canada, with a focus on the primary care needs of diverse and medically underserved populations, through community-engaged education, scholarship and service.
We are committed to educating students to become compassionate, respectful and future-ready clinicians who provide outstanding holistic health care and who lead in health system transformation.
We strive for equity in all that we do. We commit to Truth, Reconciliation, anti-racism and justice to achieve inclusion and optimal health for all.
A healthier society, together.
The School of Medicine aspires to eliminate health disparities and advance health as a human right by working with communities to achieve health equity.
