About the Scarborough Academy of Medicine and Integrated Health (SAMIH)

graduates per year at full enrolment - 40 physicians, 55 physician assistants, 30 nurse practitioners, 40 physical therapists, 300 life science students

The Scarborough Academy of Medicine and Integrated Health (SAMIH) at the University of Toronto Scarborough will provide an inclusive hub for education and strengthen connections among healthcare providers in the region.

SAMIH will extend the impact of U of T’s health education programs including the Temerty Faculty of Medicine, Lawrence Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing and Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy  – and quickly advance the region’s clinical capacity across a range of disciplines.

With Scarborough-based programs for Nurse Practitioners, Physical Therapists and Physicians among others, SAMIH is ready to prepare the next generation of compassionate health professionals. And we know that Physicians trained in a region are more likely to practise there, increasing the number of professionals in the area and strengthening the health and wellbeing of local residents
