Nothing is more important than the health of children. We know nutrition is the key determinant for healthy development of children across the globe and yet the challenges have never been greater. The crisis of childhood nutrition deficiency leading to neurocognitive impairment and susceptibility to infection remains startling high locally and globally. In Bangladesh over 50 per cent of children under age five are malnourished.

Convocation is a highlight of the academic year for many reasons. It's an opportunity for students to celebrate their achievements with family, friends and the University of Toronto community. It's an opportunity for faculty members to wish their students well on the next phase of their lifelong journey of learning. And, for all of us, it is an opportunity to look ahead and take pride in the impact our students are having on health care, and the lives of families.

Fulfilling our Potential

Since it opened in 1968, the Medical Sciences Building has been home to generations of incredibly talented and dedicated biomedical researchers, educators, students and staff.

It is a place of remarkable history and extraordinary promise.

Diversity is one of our Faculty's great strengths. The cultural mix of our faculty members, students and staff, which reflects the range of ethnicities in the Greater Toronto Area, makes us one of the most diverse Faculties of Medicine in the world. We celebrated our cultural breadth and depth in our Diversity Statement, approved by Faculty Council in 2011, which also detailed our intention to prioritize Indigenous Peoples, African Canadians and the economically disadvantaged in the MD program admissions process.
