July 13, 2021
Ryerson University will be receiving a $1M planning grant from the City of Brampton to support Ryerson’s official proposal for a future School of Medicine in Brampton. The funding will be used to support the proposal, which will include details on Ryerson’s approach to health education, including focuses on primary care, technology, interprofessional practice, and culturally sensitive care. It also will enable Ryerson and Brampton to collaborate on the future site of the medical school. “The new medical school will not only dramatically enhance the healthcare system in Brampton, it will also build a foundation for a diverse pool of talent to thrive in healthcare and healthcare-related sectors across our province,” said Ryerson President Mohamed Lachemi.
