Funding Priorities

Nothing is more important than our health — both as individuals, and as a society. To provide the best care to our citizens and to remain competitive globally, we must find innovative and collaborative solutions to the profound health challenges facing us in the 21st century. 

The campaign for the Faculty of Medicine is about exploring the boundless capacity of the University of Toronto and our community to improve the health and prosperity of Canadians and citizens around the globe. Through our collective commitment, we will support the boundary-crossing reach of our faculty and hospital partners, extending our impact around the world. We will ensure our students are given the knowledge, experience and skills needed to become leaders in an increasingly complex and global health-care landscape.

We are at a pivotal moment. Never have we seen such an explosion of knowledge in the biomedical sciences or had such powerful tools to understand the underlying mechanisms of health and disease. And the future is even brighter. We will witness astounding medical discoveries in the coming decades. Advancements are happening right now that will improve our longevity and quality of life.

Anatomy Laboratories

Investing in the Foundation of Medicine Education

T‌here’s an art and a science to the study of anatomy, but for ‌many medical students today, dissection is becoming a lost ‌experience. Not so at U of T, where a major overhaul to the old ‌basement Anatomy Laboratories will ensure real-life dissection ‌continues its important role in medical education. Your support for the Anatomy Lab Renovation will help ensure cadaveric dissection retains its crucial role in medical education.
