UME Annual Report
2014-2015 & 2015-2016
I am pleased to share the Undergraduate Medical Education Annual Report covering the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 academic years. This report highlights achievements in each of our four priority areas – diversity, curriculum innovation, student experience, and teaching and partnerships – and provides a look ahead at innovations we are working towards.
While undergraduate medical education at the University of Toronto is unique in many ways, the overarching educational mission of our programs is not ours alone. We work with our vast network of partners who help us prepare tomorrow’s health care professionals to meet the changing needs of Canadians. The strides made in our four priority areas outlined in this report also demonstrate how our education programs are striving to be responsive to the many communities they are dedicated to serving.
Our ongoing commitment to social responsibility drives us to develop leaders who contribute to our communities and improve the health of individuals and populations through the discovery, application and communication of knowledge.
Over my two terms as Vice Dean, I have been privileged to work with incredibly thoughtful, energetic and inspiring faculty leaders, teachers, administrative staff and students. The innovations and achievements highlighted in this report – as well as the many other successes not profiled – are the outcome of efforts by countless individuals whose dedication to the program and our students has been unwavering.
