Closing Date: 03/03/2023, 11:59PM ET
Req ID: 29391
Job Category: Faculty - Clinical
Faculty/Division: Temerty Faculty of Medicine
Department: Dept of Medicine
Hospital Affiliation: UHN - Toronto Rehab
Campus: St. George (Downtown Toronto)


The Department of Medicine, Temerty Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto, and the Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) of the University Health Network (UHN) are seeking to recruit an academic cardiologist with combined advanced training in cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation, and cardio-oncology. The successful candidate should be eligible for a full-time clinical academic appointment at the University of Toronto as a Clinician Teacher at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The successful candidate will spend time at the UHN Cardiovascular Rehabilitation and Prevention Program and in Cardio-Oncology clinics in the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC). It is expected that the position will be 60% to 75% clinical, 5% to 20% related to teaching, research and/or administrative duties, and 5% to 10% related to service to the hospital, department and/or University (as per the University of Toronto Department of Medicine Clinician Teacher (CT) Academic Position Description, 2017). The expected start date is January 1, 2024, or as mutually agreed upon.

The successful applicant must hold an MD degree, must be Board Certified or Board Eligible in RCPSC Specialty in Cardiology, and must be eligible for medical licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. The position requires an individual with advanced training program in cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation (at least 24 months of fellowship training at a tertiary care centre), and advanced training in cardio-oncology (at least 12 months of fellowship training at a tertiary care centre), in addition to their adult cardiology training. The successful candidate will have expertise in cardiopulmonary testing, exercise prescription, primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases, and comprehensive cardiovascular rehabilitation involving an interdisciplinary allied health team. The candidate will also have expertise in the assessment, management and rehabilitation of persons with cardiotoxicity related to cancer treatments and other cardiomyopathies (e.g., amyloid heart disease). Additional desirable expertise would include delivery of rehabilitation and cardiovascular prevention using virtual models of care. Candidates with a strong clinical background in managing cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, and diabetes will be preferred.

The successful candidate should demonstrate achievement in teaching and education. Teaching excellence will be assessed by the presence of scholarly educational contributions as evidenced by pedagogical innovation, curriculum development, experience in teaching at the postgraduate level, teaching awards, leadership as a clinical educator and other relevant experience. Formal training in medical education (formalized education training (e.g., Master Teacher Program at the University of Toronto) or similar graduate degree in a health education related discipline) is required.

Preference will be given to candidates who have had experience in collaborating in clinical research focusing on traditional and emerging cardiovascular risk factors, technology supports for rehab, complex cardiovascular disease (e.g., cardiomyopathies, cardiotoxicity), as well as core domains of cardiovascular rehabilitation (e.g., exercise, nutrition, health behaviour change). Research experience in medical education will be an asset.

The successful candidate will participate in the development and delivery of educational programs for medical trainees and interprofessional education in the UHN Cardiovascular Rehabilitation and Prevention Program, the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, and the University of Toronto. Two specific focus areas will be the development of a curriculum in cardio-oncology for cardiology trainees, and a complementary curriculum in cardio-oncology rehabilitation to train PM&R and cardiology residents and fellows. The candidate will also participate in teaching during medical rotations for undergraduate and postgraduate trainees. Responsibilities will also include providing clinical care in the outpatient settings, teaching, and participation in other scholarly activities.

The successful candidate will primarily report to the Medical Director of the UHN Cardiovascular Rehabilitation and Prevention Program. In addition, issues related to cardio-oncology care, education and research will have oversight from the Medical Lead of the Cardio-Oncology Program at PMCC. All candidates must be able to function proficiently in the English language.

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 to 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 Cardiovascular Rehabilitation and Prevention Program was founded in 1968 by Dr. Terry Kavanagh and was the first institution in the world that exclusively focused on providing rehabilitation for individuals who had experienced a cardiac event. UHN Cardiovascular Rehabilitation and Prevention Program continues to be a world leader in clinical care, research and education in prevention and rehabilitation for patients with heart disease or at risk of developing cardiac conditions. The selected candidate will have an excellent opportunity to provide and innovate health services along the care continuum in an interdisciplinary environment.

Applications will be accepted until March 3, 2023, or until the position is filled. The first round of interviews is expected to start in March 2023.
