Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (SHSC) created the first academic Department of Family and Community Medicine at a University of Toronto teaching hospital in 1967. We have been dedicated to the teaching and enhancement of family medicine since those early years. The Family Practice Unit is staffed by the equivalent of 12 full-time physicians who have wide-ranging interests and expertise in such diverse areas as obstetrics, geriatrics, sleep medicine, women’s health, cancer survivorship, urgent care and emergency medicine as well as primary care research.
