WELCOME to the website of the Division of Physiatry at the University of Toronto, where we seek to advance knowledge, enable people and enhance life. This website is a crucial tool for our internal and external sharing of important information.
Internally, we are a large division with 17 full-time and 27 part-time and adjunct members and over 20 residents in nine Toronto hospitals as well as scattered in the community. We touch every area of rehabilitation medicine, serving a population of over 4 million people in one of the richest academic environments in the world.
Externally, this website strives to provide useful information to prospective students, residents and fellows, as well as our research and education partners, including other members of the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto, and other collaborators who reach far and wide.
We are a research intensive division with investigators and scientists conducting key research in efficiency and efficacy of rehabilitation intervention throughout the health care system.
We also have a wealth of educators and teachers touching students of a wide range of health care professions and are proud of our key role in the Canadian Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Review Course. And after a pause to concentrate on delivering the review course as well as the CAPM&R annual meeting, we will resume our annual Ontario Physiatry Day in 2013.
Our residency program, based at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute and its unique rehabilitation research facilities has successfully trained future teachers, educators, scientists and community practitioners.
We are glad to be able to count you as a partner in delivering on our mission and in providing leadership in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
