Faculty of Medicine

Alumni Awards

Our alumni are making a difference as health care providers, researchers, professors, decision-makers, volunteers and committed community members. A network of over 58,000 health-care leaders, including graduates of our life sciences, rehabilitation sciences, MD and MD/PhD programs, as well as more than 20,000 former residents and fellows — we make a collective impact that's worth celebrating.

Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Awards

The Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Awards were established in 1994 by the University of Toronto Alumni Association (UTAA) and the Division of University Advancement in order to recognize students who have made outstanding extra-curricular contributions to their college, faculty or school, or to the university as a whole. Each year, the Faculty of Medicine recipients are selected by a committee of Faculty of Medicine alumni.
