U of T partnerships in Timmins, northern Toronto expand health care access, training


The University of Toronto is expanding access to health care and training in two regions through partnerships with health care sites. The first of these partnerships is based in Timmins: The Timmins Press reports that U of T’s Kensington Eye Institute will provide the Timmins and District Hospital’s Ophthalmology Locum Clinic with a rotating roster of locums to serve at the clinic. The clinic currently only has one full-time ophthalmologist, so the partnership will increase access and reduce wait times for Timmins and area patients. Meanwhile, in northwest Toronto, the university and Humber River Health recently celebrated the opening of the Schulich Family Medicine Teaching Unit. The unit will serve as an official training site for U of T’s Family Medicine Residency Program.
