University of Toronto – St. George Campus

Faculty of Medicine's Youth Summer Program (YSP)

Every summer, high school students are offered an exclusive glimpse into the world of medicine and medical research by the University of Toronto's Faculty of Medicine. Students from across North America and around the world are invited to learn at Canada's most prestigious medical school.

From its home in the University of Toronto's Medical Sciences Building, in the heart of Toronto's "Medical Discovery District", the Med YSP offers students, currently enrolled in Grades 10 and 11, 4 unique 1-week modules that each introduce a major medical discipline. The 4 modules are in the fields of Physiology, Molecular Biology & Genetics, Pharmacology & Toxicology, and Microbiology. Each module includes lectures from world-class faculty and hands-on experimentation, guided by distinguished medical researchers in cutting-edge research laboratories.

The Med YSP's unparalleled access to the University of Toronto's medical faculty and research facilities allows participants to experience what it is like to be a student at Canada's premier medical school.
