The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Temerty Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, in collaboration with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Sinai Health and Women’s College Hospital, is actively seeking a dedicated full-time physician with specialized expertise in Minimally Invasive Surgery. This individual will assume an academic position and must be eligible for a full-time clinical academic appointment at the assistant professor, associate professor, or professor rank at the University of Toronto. The primary role will involve playing a crucial part in the training of fellows specializing in Advanced Pelvic Surgery. The anticipated commencement date is July 1st, 2024, or a mutually agreeable alternative.

Sinai Health and Women’s College Hospitals constitute a unified department within Obstetrics and Gynaecology, holding esteemed positions as leaders in Women’s and Infants’ Health at both regional and national levels. Mount Sinai Hospital, a fully-affiliated teaching hospital with the University of Toronto, is associated with the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, a globally recognized institution where research in Women’s and Infants’ health is a prominent focus.

The Division of General Obstetrics and Gynecology currently comprises six surgeons who specialize in complex benign gynecology and surgery. They serve as a tertiary referral service for women dealing with various conditions, including advanced endometriosis, chronic abnormal uterine bleeding, uterine fibroids, pelvic masses, reproductive surgery, and Müllerian anomalies. The team maintains robust collaborations with Medical Imaging, Surgery, and Urology.

The Division is seeking an individual with clinical expertise and skills in the following areas:

1. High-quality medical and surgical management of individuals with complex pelvic disorders such as advanced forms of endometriosis, providing leading-edge diagnostic tools and therapies. Clinical responsibilities will extend to both Mount Sinai Hospital and Women’s College Hospital.

2. Participation in a rotational gynecology-only call coverage system, encompassing day, night, weekend, and holiday shifts. The candidate will not be participating in obstetrical care or call.

3. Contribution to scholarly work within the Division of General Obstetrics and Gynaecology based on clinical and/or research interests. This may include knowledge translation, patient education, digital platforms, retrospective and/or prospective cohort studies, as well as education and simulation.

Candidates must be licensed or eligible for an independent or restricted license under the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. Additionally, they should have completed a fellowship in Minimally Invasive Surgery or an equivalent surgical fellowship. The selected candidate will actively contribute to the two-year surgical fellowship accredited through the AAGL. Enthusiastic participation in all levels of our teaching and education mandate is expected, with teaching duties for learners within the department. The successful candidate will embody and promote excellence in professional practices and conduct and be able to work cooperatively and collegially within a diverse environment.

The position will be placed in the Hospital Department Practice Plan with a minimum gross annual compensation of $250,000.00 CAD (estimated based on fee-for-service billings). Applications will be accepted until March 10, 2024 or until the position is filled.
