Prospective Students

For many of us who are passionate about science, research is a way to change the world, bring new understanding to complex problems and build on progress. Here at the University of Toronto's Temerty Faculty of Medicine, we're preparing the next generation of health sciences researchers and leaders through our graduate studies programs. Our community of scholars and students are engaged in a comprehensive range of life sciences disciplines ranging from basic sciences to rehabilitative sciences.

Why study at U of T?

We offer graduate students the most generous stipends in Canada. Stipends for graduate students in the basic sciences start at $37,000 (MSc) and $40,000 (PhD).

The Temerty Entrance Scholarships, valued at $10,000 each, are awarded to top graduate candidates in any of the research-based graduate programs in Temerty Medicine.

Our students learn from world-class faculty members and enjoy strong relationships with their supervisors and mentors.

Our students have the opportunity to join a network of peers through mentorship programs that provide feedback and insight from senior students.

Our programs are delivered on campus and in partnership with our nine fully affiliated hospitals. This means that students can engage on a variety of projects, from pure scientific discovery to clinical practice.
