Visiting Professor Program

The University of Toronto Visiting Professor Program has the goal of inviting highly distinguished and luminary individuals to Toronto to enrich not only the education of radiology trainees via their clinical expertise but also to provide opportunities for intellectual exchanges with faculty as well as foster potential research and leadership collaborations. The VP typically spends a day and a half lecturing and teaching radiology trainees followed by brainstorming sessions with faculty in key areas of research, administration, and or leadership. 

A list of most recent VPs are included below:
