COVID-19: Your Safety and Responsibility

Apr 7, 2020

City of Toronto & University of Toronto campus.

The University of Toronto and our hospital partners are working closely together to optimize the management of COVID-19 concerns across our system.

The Faculty of Medicine is consolidating a range of clinical and wellness resources for medical residents and fellows as well as continuing professional development resources for physicians navigating their roles during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition, CAMH, a fully affiliated U of T hospital, has developed an online resource that includes strategies to maintain your mental wellness during the pandemic.

As information continues to evolve around COVID-19, please note that any U of T learner who is going into any health care setting where patients are being treated – including but not limited to private clinics and offices for rehab professionals – is considered a clinical learner. As such, we have cancelled the international placement of all clinical learners.

In addition, all visiting medical student, resident and fellow elective activity is cancelled as of Monday March 16, 2020. See message below

There are no in-person classes at the University of Toronto as of Monday March 16, 2020. The University is also cancelling all future student activities outside of Canada until August 14, 2020.

The Faculty of Medicine and its hospital partners want to ensure that learners and faculty are kept safe and patients are kept safe while learners and faculty are performing their duties. We also want to ensure our educational programs continue as best as possible, and will continue to provide updates on this page throughout the period of concern.
