The Raymond Chang Foundation is named after the late Toronto-based businessman and philanthropist who had a passion for adult education. Born in Jamaica, Mr. Chang was a proud and active member of the Caribbean-Canadian community. He was appointed to the Order of Jamaica in 2011 and as an officer of the Order of Canada in 2014.
Raymond Chang understood the relevance of forensic pathology as a truth-seeking tool for justice. His legacy lives on through the dedication of his children, Andrew Chang and Brigette Chang-Addorisio. Their generosity and shared vision have ensured a sustainable fellowship international training program at U of T.
This is the first fund anywhere that enables young physicians from the developing world to train in forensic pathology and ultimately strengthen forensic capacity in their own countries. This fellowship provides financial support to trainees whose countries may not be able to fund a year of training in Canada, particularly those from the West Indies.
There is one place available each year. Please follow the application guidelines for fellowships to apply.
