New Medical School at York University Focused on Primary Care Doctors

We are taking historic action to grow our health care workforce by launching the largest expansion of Ontario’s medical education system in over a decade.

Our government’s $9 million investment through the 2024 budget, Building a Better Ontario will support the design and planning for York University’s new medical in Vaughan.

As the first medical school in Canada focused primarily on training family doctors, this new school will make an enormous impact in the lives of people in York Region and across Ontario.

This new medical school will include up to 80 undergraduate seats and up to 102 postgraduate seats starting in September 2028, with up to 240 undergraduate seats and 293 postgraduate seats on an annual basis once operating at full capacity.

This announcement is part of our plan to connect more Ontario families to more convenient care, including primary care.
