Welcome to the Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine at the University of Toronto.
The department has a rich history of clinical and scientific excellence. Founded in 1907, it is the oldest and largest academic anesthesia department in Canada and one of the largest in North America.
In 2020, the department changed its name to the Department of Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine to acknowledge "anesthesiology" as a scientific discipline as well as the department's commitment to preventing and treating pain.
Individuals who wish to present their research at Shields Research Day 2024 are encouraged to submit abstracts (the maximum number of abstract submissions per first author is three) by Friday, March 8, 2024.
Dr. Colin McCartney has received the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine Distinguished Service Award for 2024. The award recognizes his exceptional contributions to the field and underscores the impact he has had on the specialty.
Together, with your generosity, we are supporting the advancement of medical research and education. We will collectively impact the future of the next generation of clinicians, educators and researchers.
