The University of Alberta, Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, in partnership with Alberta Health Services (AHS), invites applicants to apply for an academic position, within the Division of Pediatric Cardiology and Section of Pediatric Cardiology in the Department of Pediatrics.
The successful applicant will join seventeen academic pediatric cardiologists providing a full spectrum of clinical pediatric cardiology services with expertise in multi-modal diagnostic imaging, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, fetal cardiology, heart failure, cardiac transplantation, and preventive cardiology; new subspecialty programs are under development.
The successful applicant will join 2 interventional cardiologists (1 full time and 1 part time) who provide continuous service and support the second largest cardio-surgical program in Canada. In a year, there are 400 cardiac catheterization procedures with 2/3 of those being catheter interventional procedures. The Interventional Cardiology Service supports the Western Canadian Children's Heart Network (WCCHN) and accepts most referrals from all three prairie provinces for diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures. Interventional pediatric cardiologists at our institution work in close collaboration with the adult congenital cardiac interventional program at the University of Alberta Hospital and the Mazankowski Heart Institute which also supports all three Canadian prairie provinces.
The Division has an active basic and clinical science program, collaborating locally, nationally, and internationally.
In addition to clinical care, the division is active in teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The Division is the home for a fully accredited Pediatric Cardiology subspecialty-training program through the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. There are numerous trainees (undergraduate and postgraduate students, residents and clinical/research fellows) at the Division each academic year.
This is a full time 1.0 FTE position. The position profile will require 60% clinical service and 40% academic pursuits: the distribution of responsibilities is could be subject to modification. Contributions to education at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels are expected from all University faculty.
