General and Thoracic Surgery


The residency training program in General Surgery at the University of Toronto is the largest and most diverse training program in Canada, and most likely in North America.  The vision is simply to provide the best training experience for General Surgery residents in North America.

The training program boats nearly 70 geographic full-time faculty members spread over seven core and three non-core hospitals. Faculty members represent opinion leaders and experts in essentially every subspecialty area of General Surgery.

The University of Toronto teaching hospitals are fortunate to provide surgical care for a large urban population as well as patients arising from a vast catchment area and referral network.  This fact provides outstanding learning opportunities and a breadth of clinical volume that is unsurpassed.
