Departments, Institutes, Centres and Other Units

Susan Armstrong

The breadth and depth of the Faculty of Medicine's activities are represented in its departments, centres and institutes. These include interdisciplinary research units that bring researchers together to address specific challenges and identify solutions. It also includes 26 departments that foster discovery, provide training and deliver answers to pressing questions in medical research and care. Through the websites listed below, you can learn more about these units, and more importantly, about the people who bring the ideas, energy and passions needed to do what can’t be done.
