The Department of Medical Imaging at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the University of Toronto are recruiting two (2) full-time radiologists in the Emergency & Trauma Radiology Division. The anticipated start date is September 1, 2023 or sooner if possible.
Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (SHSC) is a fully affiliated hospital of the University of Toronto with over 1300 beds; of which 677 are dedicated to acute care (including 128 intensive care). SHSC includes Canada’s first and largest trauma program and has a dynamic and busy Emergency Department (ED). The Emergency and Trauma Radiology Division (ETRD) is an integral part of the patient services at Sunnybrook, both for the ED population and emergencies of patients admitted to internationally acclaimed specialty programs, including the Tory Trauma Program, Odette Cancer Program, the Schulich Heart Program and the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Program. Sunnybrook also has one of the largest critical care facilities in North America. Therefore, emergency radiologists encounter a broad spectrum of acute conditions: acute (poly-) trauma, neurologic emergencies such as stroke, cardiovascular emergencies, thoracic as well as abdominal emergencies and acute complications in oncology patients.
The Department of Medical Imaging at SHSC has recently completed the largest upgrade of medical imaging equipment in more than a generation. This included the installment of 4 new MRI machines and 4 new CT machines, all state-of-the-art with DECT capability. All acute care imaging is interpreted 24/7 from a 6-station reading room embedded in the ED, next to the ED CT and trauma bay.
The SHSC radiology practice is composed of 45-50 subspecialty radiologists. The successful candidates will be team members in the Emergency & Trauma Radiology Division which was founded in 2016. They will provide interpretation of acute care imaging, including overnight on call coverage and will be expected to play a contributing role in all areas of subspecialty emergency and trauma imaging. The ETRD team members also report a mix of acute care and outpatient imaging studies from other divisions during the daytime.
The successful candidates will be an integral part of the teaching faculty of our Undergraduate Medical Education, Continuing Medical Education, Residency, and Fellowship Programs as a Clinician-Teacher.
The qualified applicant should be eligible for an academic appointment at the rank of Lecturer or Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, hold a Fellowship in Diagnostic Imaging from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, or international equivalent, and be eligible for medical licensure in the Province of Ontario, with sufficient experience to perform subspecialty work in Emergency and Trauma Imaging. A year of dedicated fellowship training in Emergency and Trauma Radiology post-residency graduation is essential.
Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with the candidate's qualifications and experience. Compensation is based on a fee-for-service model. The estimated income range will be $300,000 - $500,000 per annum for a full-time equivalent with the opportunity for increased salary commensurate with experience and academic credentials.
The positions will remain open until filled.
Qualified candidates should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and three references to:
