Welcome to MetroDIS

Metro Toronto Hospitals Drug Information Service

A Canadian regional drug information service designed to meet the needs of hospital pharmacists and community pharmacists. MetroDIS is physically located at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Canada. It is accredited as a drug information service by the Ontario College of Pharmacists.

Evolution of MetroDIS

The establishment of MetroDIS in February 1982 was initiated by the Association of Pharmacy Managers of Toronto and Area Hospitals. It exists in response to the need to efficiently provide comprehensive drug information services to Toronto and surrounding area hospitals. In recent years, the service has been extended to community pharmacists in Ontario. MetroDIS is an independent service, financially supported by the membership.

Full membership is available to hospital pharmacies, community pharmacies and other health-related institutions in Canada. Newsletter subscriptions are available to hospital pharmacies outside the Greater Toronto Area, community pharmacies, other healthcare professionals, or pharmaceutical manufacturers.

NOTE: this service is not available to individuals other than healthcare professionals. Please click here for information about full membership or newsletter subscriptions.
