Testimonials

"I truly could not have asked for a better training experience than at the University of Toronto. I have recently started independent practice as a Colorectal Surgeon, and have had the opportunity to reflect on my residency. Learning from national and international leaders has taught me to think outside of the box, seek and understand the evidence to improve patient care, and recognize the importance and power of multidisciplinary collaboration for our patients. I learned this in a program where the culture is progressive, supportive, diverse, challenging and extremely rewarding. It has given me the skills and knowledge to manage complex surgical patients, as well as a large group of friends and co-residents that I see as a second family, and an expansive professional network to lean on and learn from. I feel fortunate and honored to be a U of T General Surgery graduate, a program that afforded me the opportunities and mentorship that set me up for success."


—Marisa Louridas (2018 Graduate) Staff Colorectal Surgeon, St. Michael’s Hospital


"There are two important components to choosing a surgical residency program. First, you need to be confident that the program has the resources and dedication to transform you into a capable surgeon. The second, is that the program has a breadth of surgeons so that you can find the right mentors for you. You will find both of these things at the University of Toronto. Because of this, I was hired for a staff job in the Greater Toronto Area before I even wrote my Royal College and was very grateful for my training when I was performing my first solo trauma splenectomy several weeks after graduating!"
