Mark

Mark Wlodarski

As the Student Support Administrator, I have a unique role that represents Enrolment Services and the Office of Health Professions Student Affairs (OHPSA) at the UTM campus. I am a go-between for Mississauga MD Program students from all years for all items which are not related to curriculum/research. Many students and staff will say: “If you are not sure about something, go speak to Mark – he will help you find the right answer.”; I am able to connect you with the right resources and/or people. You can ask me about things (but not limited to) such as lockers, room bookings, O-Week, enrolment/registrarial/financial requests and counselling appointments (OHPSA). In your upper years you might ask me about CaRMS, notarizing, and Convocation. Never hesitate to ask me about anything on your mind! We want to make sure you have the best four years possible in the MD Program. You can reach me at mark.wlodarski@utoronto.ca.
