Living History

Inspired by a dedicated group of alumni from the Class of 1944, the Living History website celebrates U of T Medicine’s tremendous legacy and impact through memories shared by our alumni community. From the most well-known research breakthroughs in the Faculty’s 125-year history to hitherto untold stories of U of T Medicine alumni, faculty and staff, this virtual yearbook will preserve our past while paying tribute to our ongoing present-day story. Woven together, these individual U of T Medicine experiences tell an extraordinary story of a world leader in health education, research and clinical care.

Taking Toronto’s Healthcare History

• Appreciating our history 
• Building a community
• Fostering collaborations
• Preserving our past

The Toronto Healthcare History Group remains active and is currently planning a new event on the theme of “Health and the City” for 2015.
