Monthly Newsletter

The ORT Times is a monthly e-newsletter focused on UHN trainees featuring news and editorials about trainee life, articles to help developing researchers get the most out of their training experience at UHN, and tips on career development.

The content of The ORT Times is written primarily by the ORT coordinator and the Science Writer – who is a trainee writing part-time for the ORT, giving them valuable science writing experience. The ORT also accepts editorials, tutorials and other content written by UHN trainees.

If you have an idea and would like to write something for the ORT Times, please email the coordinator at ort.admin@uhnresearch.ca to pitch your idea.
