COVID-19: Your Safety and Responsibility

Jul 8, 2020

The University of Toronto is preparing for a gradual return to its campuses, with as much on-campus activity as is possible while keeping health and safety first and foremost. The University is developing guidelines for divisions and faculties in the areas of research, environmental health and safety and more.

In the face of a complex and continuously evolving situation, we know we must remain agile and responsive. At the Faculty of Medicine, we will slowly and safely ramp up our research enterprise starting in June, following public health guidelines around physical distancing and proper hygiene. Updates will be posted on the Research section of our website.

In early July, our MD learners – an integral part of healthcare teams – expect to be reintegrating into the hospital learning environments alongside other health science pre-licensure learners. This is an essential step forward for the next generation of healthcare providers, all of whom are ready to face new protocols and challenges with courage and skill, as our vigilance continues in the face of COVID-19.

Through all of this uncertainty and change ahead, our community’s health and safety remain our highest priorities. This includes an ongoing commitment to mental health and wellbeing.

The Faculty of Medicine offers 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.
