Major Sponsors

Healthy Debate is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto and the Ontario SPOR Support Unit (OSSU). As part of our funding partnership with OSSU, a small portion of our articles and Faces interviews highlight research that is supported by this organization. None of our sponsors are involved in the research, writing or editing of the articles.

The Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto is one of the largest in North America, with 800 full-time faculty members and 600 post-graduate trainees working in many hospitals and clinical practice sites across the Greater Toronto Area. One third of Canada’s and one half of Ontario’s internal medicine specialists received their training in the department. A commitment to equity, diversity and professionalism, and a philosophy of innovation, creativity and continuous quality improvement, informs everything the department doesdeptmedicine.utoronto.ca


The Ontario SPOR SUPPORT Unit (OSSU) is a collaboration across 12 leading health Research Centres, supported by a Coordinating Centre, which facilitates, connects and integrates activities across the network. The initiative engages researchers, patients, clinicians, policy makers, industry representatives and other health system professionals to implement Canada’s Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research within Ontario. ossu.ca
