U of T has renewed affiliation agreements between itself and the Toronto Academic Health Science Network (TAHSN).

TAHSN is a consortium that includes U of T and numerous hospitals in Toronto, including Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care, Sinai Health System, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, the Hospital for Sick Children, St. Michael’s Hospital, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Women’s College Hospital, and the University Health Network — which includes Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital, and Toronto Rehabilitation Institute.

The agreement was last signed in December 2011 and provides a framework for collaborations, such as joint research and hospital placements for U of T medical students.

Updates made to the 2011 agreement have been made for clarity, legislation and policy changes, and to “reflect the changing relationship with the TAHSN hospitals.”

Governing Council approved the renewed agreement on October 27.
