We strive for excellence in all our educational endeavours and take pride in the many quality educational opportunities available here, such as those through the Centre for Ambulatory Care Education (CACE).
Women’s College Hospital has a rich history of creating a safe space for marginalized groups to practice medicine and continue their education. The history of Women's College Hospital began in 1883 with the founding of Woman's Medical College. This came in as a response to the refusal of medical schools in Toronto to admit women for the study of medicine. The Education team at WCH strives to create life-long learners, while also aiding the path of our future healthcare professionals. As a fully affiliated Academic Hospital, WCH hosts learners from a variety of health professions.
