WELCOME to the Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Toronto, where we seek to advance knowledge, enable people and enhance life.

We are a large division of the University of Toronto Department of Medicine.  We have full-time, part-time and adjunct members in rehabilitation and acute care hospitals throughout Toronto and the surrounding community. Our residents and fellows rotate to nine Toronto area hospitals as well as to community sites and hospitals in other cities.  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.

This website strives to provide useful information to prospective students, residents and fellows, as well as to our research and education partners at the University of Toronto and other Canadian and international institutions.  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 teaching students of a wide range of health care professions.  Our residency and fellowship programs continue to successfully train future teachers, educators, scientists and community practitioners.

We are honored to be able to count you as a partner in delivering on our mission and in providing leadership in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
