A much-needed prescription for Canada’s doctor shortage.

The Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex and the Mississauga Academy of Medicine are designed to help address Ontario’s critical shortage of doctors. The project is a result of a partnership between U of T Mississauga, U of T’s Faculty of Medicine and local hospitals. By 2014, the Academy will have 216 students enrolled in its four-year program. Medical students study alongside scientists and benefit from clinical training at Trillium Health Partners.

In the coming years, U of T Mississauga will build additional public/private partnerships to ensure the Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex and the Mississauga Academy of Medicine are at the vanguard of medical research, education and clinical training.
