Scholarships

Toronto Rehab believes that education is integral to excellence in patient care and research. Our innovative student inter-professional education program (IPE) supports the development of clinical and teaching skills through faculty level workshops, continuing professional development opportunities, mentorship, tuition assistance and library services.

The generosity of donors has helped to provide meaningful scholarships and bursaries to our staff who seek to further their education and enhance their work with patients. Scholarships are established to be handed out on a yearly basis and are an exemplary way to honour staff and students who are working to make a difference in the lives of countless rehabilitation patients.
