About Us

There is a long-standing history of Obstetric Medicine at the University of Toronto. The current Toronto Obstetric Medicine program is one of the largest Obstetric Medicine programs in North America. The program includes teams from six of the University of Toronto academic hospitals - Mount Sinai Hospital, University Health Network, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, St. Michael’s Hospital, Women’s College Hospital and Hospital for Sick Children. Among these hospitals, there are more than 12,000 deliveries per year and a significant portion of the deliveries occur in women with medical conditions. To address the clinical needs of this large volume of patients, there are more than 50 medical experts involved in the program with expertise spanning all of the medical specialties.

The overriding goal of the program is to provide outstanding clinical care for pregnant women with medical disorders. The program, also known for excellence in teaching, has a longstanding Obstetric Medicine fellowship training program, and researchers at the University of Toronto are world renowned for their innovative research in the field of Obstetric Medicine.
