Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine

Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine at the University of Toronto.

The department has a rich history of academic, 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.
