Brief Biography

Jay Rosenfield, MD, MEd, FRCPC

Dr. Rosenfield was appointed Vice-Dean, Undergraduate Medical Education (UME), in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, in July 2005. He is responsible for all aspects of the MD Education Program including the Offices of Admissions, Faculty Registrar, Student Finances and Awards, Student Affairs, and the Pre-Clerkship and Clerkship Curriculum. He is also Professor of Paediatrics at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Rosenfield has an established history of involvement in the MD Program. Serving initially as a bedside teacher and PBL tutor, he went on to accept leadership roles as a Clinical Skills Course Director, Director, Pre-clerkship and Director, Curriculum Design and Program Evaluation. He served as the Senior Academic Coordinator for the successful external accreditation of the Undergraduate Medical Education Program in May 2004. Dr. Rosenfield is currently leading a major undergraduate medicine curriculum review at the University of Toronto, and is a member of the steering committee, and Co-Chair of the Implementation Task Force for the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada’s “Future of Medical Education in Canada” project.

Dr. Rosenfield graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music/University of Toronto with a diploma in piano performance in 1978, and then completed Medical School at the University of Toronto in 1982. He is certified in Paediatrics by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and the American Board of Pediatrics, and received a Masters of Education degree from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) in 1998. A developmental paediatrician and clinician-educator, he has active appointments at both The Hospital for Sick Children and Bloorview Kids Rehab. In addition to having served as the physician representative for Ontario on the Minister of Education Advisory Council for Special Education, he is a Project Director at The Hospital for Sick Children Research Institute. He was Co-Director of the Developmental Paediatric Fellowship Program for many years. In 2002, Dr. Rosenfield received the President’s Award from the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario in recognition of his contributions as co-chair of a four-year, multi-million dollar, Government-funded project promoting early intervention for pre-school students at risk.
