MD Program

The MD Program at the University of Toronto is one of the largest undergraduate medical education programs in Canada.  We are proud to support and promote the development of future academic health leaders who will contribute to our communities and improve the health of individuals and populations through the discovery, application and communication of knowledge.

The first two years of the MD Program occur in laboratory, classroom, clinical, and community settings and are designed to prepare students for the workplace learning that occurs in clerkship.

The last two years of the four-year program offer integrated learning experience that enable further development of knowledge, skills and professional attitudes.

Student Assistance

The Student Assistance section is intended as a quick reference for medical students at the University of Toronto who are experiencing an urgent or crisis situation. This section provides information and links to resources on key issues that may arise, but does not connect you directly to assistance. If your health or safety, or the health or safety of someone else, is at risk, please call 911 or seek medical attention right away.

For Leighton Schreyer, interactions with the health care system haven’t always been positive. But instead of turning them away from pursuing medicine, these experiences cemented their desire to become the kind of doctor they needed. Now an MD student at Temerty Medicine, Schreyer talked about the human side of medicine, pursuing medical school as someone with a mental illness diagnosis, and their passion for writing and poetry.
