Landmark donation brings medical academy to Mississauga

The new Health Sciences Complex being built at U of T Mississauga has received a landmark $10-million gift from Mississauga businessman Carlo Fidani.

The complex is currently under construction and scheduled to open in August 2011. It will house the new Mississauga Academy of Medicine, which will train 54 new family physicians annually. Students will focus on family and community medicine and specialties such as general surgery, general internal medicine and general psychiatry.

Fidani’s gift – the single largest donation ever made to U of T Mississauga – will support the facility’s construction and will endow medical student bursaries and a chair in family and community care at the Faculty of Medicine.

In addition to the medical academy, the four-storey Health Sciences Complex will house the graduate biomedical communications program, research laboratories, classrooms and offices.
