One of the health care challenges facing our community is a shortage of family doctors, which is why Trillium has teamed up with Summerville Family Health Team and the UofT to create the Trillium-Summerville Family Medicine Teaching Unit (FMTU).
A Government of Ontario initiative, the Trillium-Summerville FMTU opened in July 2009, providing family doctors for the community of Mississauga.
The FMTU hosts residents to assist UofT’s Department of Family and Community Medicine to expand its resident numbers, develop new teaching units in hospitals outside of Toronto, and decrease the shortage of family doctors in our communities. Ten residents are currently doing a two-year residency at the FMTU. When the FMTU reaches its full complement of residents in 2012, 18 residents will be onsite.
