Centre for Research on Inner City Health - St. Michael’s Hospital

The Centre for Research on Inner City Health (CRICH) is dedicated to reducing health inequities through innovative research that supports social change.

We conduct research to better understand the linkages between poverty, social exclusion and poor health. And we work in partnership with community agencies and decision-makers to evaluate population health interventions to improve health outcomes for inner city populations.

St. Michael's Hospital

As downtown Toronto’s adult trauma centre, the hospital is a hub for neurosurgery, complex cardiac and cardiovascular care, diabetes and osteoporosis care, minimally invasive surgery and care of the homeless and disadvantaged. St. Michael’s is also one of the province’s major sites of care for critically ill patients.

Fully affiliated with the University of Toronto, St. Michael’s provides outstanding medical education to health-care professionals in more than 23 academic disciplines. Home to the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, made up of the Keenan Research Centre and the Li Ka Shing International Healthcare Education Centre, the hospital is among the first in the world to bring together researchers, educators and clinicians to take best practices and research discoveries to patient bedsides faster.
