Established in 1958, The Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences is Canada’s only post-secondary institution devoted exclusively to health sciences education. Michener offers full-time and continuing education in Imaging, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Medical Radiation Sciences, Primary and Critical Care and other specialized applied health programs. With a robust and responsive curriculum that emphasizes inter-professional collaboration and simulation-based training, graduates are prepared to deliver quality diagnostic and therapeutic services.
Michener is publicly funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and further enriched through partnerships with universities, private sector companies and leading healthcare organizations. Our curriculum is driven by the emerging needs of the healthcare system, so Michener faculty and students value and participate in research that informs the best patient outcomes.
Michener’s recent integration with University Health Network—Canada’s largest academic hospital—has further solidified the critical role health research plays in preparing the health labour force of tomorrow. It also accelerates the transfer of academic research at Michener from the school labs into clinical practice, benefiting students and healthcare professionals … and most importantly, the patient.

Research plays a critical role in every aspect of the healthcare spectrum, including how we prepare the healthcare labour force to adapt to scientific and systemic change. And as research continues to push evolution in medical science, education in schools and in hospitals needs to stay in step. Having a solid research foundation for our healthcare system helps the Michener Institute of Education at UHN constantly adapt curriculum to advances in health technology, ensuring new practitioners are ahead of the curve and anticipating changes.
