Ontario Training More Doctors to Build A Stronger Health Care System

The government announced a major expansion to medical school education to ensure there are enough doctors to meet future need across the province, especially in growing and underserved communities. Ontario is adding 160 undergraduate seats and 295 postgraduate positions over the next five years, the largest expansion of undergraduate and postgraduate education in over 10 years.

This expansion will support all six medical schools across Ontario, including the new University of Toronto Scarborough Academy of Medicine and Integrated Health, the Queen’s-Lakeridge Health Campus, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Western University, McMaster University and the University of Ottawa. Medical seats will also be allotted to the new Ryerson School of Medicine in Brampton when it becomes operational.
