Description:

The Department of Medicine, Temerty Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto, and the Division of Cardiology of the University Health Network (UHN) and Sinai Health System (SHS) are seeking to recruit an academic cardiologist in the area of Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) and Obstetric Cardiology. The successful candidate must be eligible for a full-time clinical academic appointment at the University of Toronto as a Clinician Teacher at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor. The successful applicant will spend time at UHN and Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). The successful candidate will participate in the Transition Program at SickKids and UHN. The anticipated start date is November 1, 2021 or as mutually agreed upon.

The successful applicant will have completed a full training program in ACHD (at least 18 months training at a tertiary care centre) in addition to their adult or pediatric cardiology training. Previous Teaching excellence will be assessed by the presence of scholarly contributions to teaching and education as evidenced by pedagogical innovation, curriculum development, experience in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level, and teaching awards.

The successful candidate will report to the Division Director of Cardiology at UHN/SHS. Candidates must hold an MD degree or equivalent and should have, or be eligible for, certification in Cardiology or in Pediatric Cardiology by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO). The primary language of work will be English. Compensation will depend on the amount of clinical work performed, (estimated based on fee for service billing) but will be in the usual range for an experienced Cardiologist in the Province of Ontario at approximately $250,000-300,000 per year and be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Additional sources of income from Alternate Funding Plans (AFPs) and merit awards from the Department of Medicine may be available. Health benefit options and plans are supplied per institutional policy. In addition, the candidate may be reimbursed partial start-up costs for office expenses.

The ACHD Program at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC) is recognized as a world leader in providing clinical care to ACHD patients and providing training in this undersubscribed specialty. The primary goal of this recruitment is to participate in our transition service, maintain excellence in patient care, education, and research, in the face of an increasing patient volume.
