Academic Strategic Plan 2018-2023

Over the course of a year, the Faculty of Medicine consulted more than 400 people, reaching out to every sector and constituency that comprises U of T Medicine. From the input we received, we identified a guiding vision for this Faculty:

Our learners, graduates, faculty, staff and partners will be an unparalleled force for new knowledge, better health and equity.

We will cultivate and bring to life ideas that impact scholarship and society through unprecedented collaboration drawing in the diverse voices of our research, learning and clinical network.

I am pleased to share with you the 2018-2023 Academic Strategic Plan, which details how we will achieve that vision and advance our work as one of the world’s top faculties of medicine. Together, we will be leaders in generating knowledge, improving health outcomes and achieving greater equity.
