Welcome to Practice Ontario at UofT

Since 2005, our resident exit surveys consistently show that insufficient attention is given to career planning during residency. In response, the PGME Office began last year to work with HealthForceOntario to respond to this need and have entered into a partnership called Practice Ontario at UofT.

This service puts residents in touch with a personal career advisor, who will work with our residents to explore practice openings in Ontario, both permanent and locum. The advisor can help with CV preparation, mock interviews, arrange community visits, offer suggestions on spousal employment and much more.

Practice Ontario is a free and flexible service. The career advisor is situated at the PGME Office at 500 University Avenue one day per week, but consultations can also be arranged at the resident's hospital/training site, or by phone. This service and advice is not limited to senior or soon-to-be-exiting residents - junior residents are also invited to establish contact with an advisor and stay in touch through his/her residency. Contact details are:
