The Department of Medical Imaging, University of Toronto, is the oldest academic imaging department in Canada and one of the oldest in North America, appointing the first Chair of Radiology in 1919, less than 25 years after the discovery of the X-ray. Since then the Department has grown to become an early adopter of every new technological breakthrough occurring in this young and vital specialty. Today the Department boasts over 300 (225 Full Time, 91 Adjunct) faculty members, 62 residents and 119 fellows. It is invested in eight clinical divisions and affiliated with 17 hospital sites across Toronto. Within the faculty, there are more than 70 associate and full professors and over 15 basic or clinician scientists. Making sure all runs smoothly day-to-day are seven administrative staff, without whom the Department would grind to a halt.

For the Department to achieve maximum impact our academic strategies must closely align with those of the University. In the last few years the Temerty Faculty of Medicine (TFoM) has defined its course with new academic and research strategic plans. These have given clear indications of the direction we need to take. The academic imperatives of education and research are framed by the requisites of innovation, integration and impact, and an overall vision of improving health.
