Teaching & Research

Our bold vision at Scarborough Health Network (SHN) is to be Canada’s leading community teaching hospital. For us, teaching and medical education are not just a strategic priority, they are an integral part of who we are. Building on our rich history that includes an affiliation with the University of Toronto dating back to the 1970s, medical education and research continues to grow every year at SHN. Together with our academic partners, we work to offer best-in-class teaching and research opportunities in the community hospital setting to help train the next generation of health care professionals. 

Our Scarborough community and health network’s rich diversity of residents, patients, families, and teams, represents where our country is going. Understanding Scarborough’s health care needs today is, in many ways, understanding the future of Canada’s health care needs.

We welcome you to be part of learning and innovation at our leading health network.
