And so it begins, on the concrete steps outside of MSB.. here you will meet volunteers, other nervous incoming 1T9s, and the Orientation Week coordinators. We know what you’re thinking - how NICE are those orange backpacks? Jealousy aside, we can’t wait to see what the 1T9 backpacks look like!


Congratulations and Welcome to the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto!


We present to you the official Orientation Week website where you will find the detailed school year scheduleinstructions for registration, frequently asked questions, things to do in Toronto and Mississauga, and much more!

This year's Orientation Week will be taking place from Monday, August 22 to Saturday, August 27 – so that means book it off, come home early from your EuroTrip, call in sick for work, basically do whatever you have to do to be here because we promise you, you do not want to miss it! We invite you to explore the website, which includes information that will not only guide you through an incredibly exciting Orientation Week, but also give you an idea of what your first year of medical school in Toronto will look and feel like.  Be sure to keep visiting this website as we will be updating it periodically throughout the summer with more information and event details. 
We cannot wait to meet all 259 of you on August 22 and we hope you are just as excited as we are! Please feel free to use the forums for group discussion or e-mail us with any specific questions or concerns as we approach Orientation Week!


Love, Team CHIMERA
