The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at St. Michael’s Hospital is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto and is part of the Women’s and Children’s Health Program, Unity Health Toronto. The Department is dedicated to patient-centered multidisciplinary care and community health, especially for patients with higher levels of medical and surgical complexity, while also being one of the busiest robotic units for surgical gynaecology in Canada.

The successful candidate will be a member of the MIGS division, and practice Gynaecology, with a special emphasis on (but not limited to) patients with endometriosis. Clinical responsibilities will include gynaecology outpatient clinics and surgical gynaecology.

Given the emphasis on the position as clinician educator, the successful candidate will demonstrate enthusiastic participation in all levels of our teaching and education mandate (undergraduate, residency, fellowship) as well as assume responsibilities in educational leadership and research opportunities. Obstetrical practice opportunities may be included depending on the candidate’s preference and departmental resource availability.

Candidates must either be licensed, or be eligible for an independent or restricted academic licence, under the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO).

Qualified applicants must either be board-certified (or eligible for certification) in the sub-specialty of Minimally Invasive Gynaecologic Surgery by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) or have achieved an equivalent level of regulated sub-specialty training in Minimally Invasive Surgery, ideally holding a MSc in a relevant graduate training program.
