Locum Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon - Alberta Health Services

Edmonton, Alberta

The University of Alberta, Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, in partnership with Alberta Health Services (AHS), invites applicants to apply for a one-year Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon locum, within the Division of Pediatric Surgery in the Department of Surgery.

The successful applicant will join four pediatric orthopedic surgeons, one spine surgeon, and two nurse practitioners who provide a full range of elective orthopaedic and trauma services to children up to age of 17 years. The successful applicant is expected to have superior technical surgical skills, clinical judgement, and the ability to collaborate with a multidisciplinary health care team. Training in limb reconstruction and/or cerebral palsy is an asset but not essential.

The Division of Pediatric Surgery is an integral part of the Department of Surgery and provides secondary and tertiary care services for the city of Edmonton, northern Alberta, and parts of British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, Yukon Territories, and Nunavut. This position will be based at the University of Alberta Hospitals (UAH) which is a leading clinical, research, and teaching centre that treats more than 700,000 patients annually. The surgeon will work specifically at the Stollery Childrens Hospital (STO), a western Canadian referral centre for specialized paediatric services located within the UAH, and at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital.

The candidate will be expected to apply for a Clinical Academic Colleague appointment in the Department of Surgery, University of Alberta, which will be considered a separate process through the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. The candidate is expected to participate in all aspects of an academic surgical practice. This involves clinical practice (including providing call coverage), research, teaching, and administrative activities commensurate with the locum position.

Candidates must hold the FRCSC in orthopedic surgery or equivalent. The ideal candidate must have successfully completed fellowship training in pediatric orthopedics. Remuneration will be on a fee-for-services basis through billings submitted by the physician to Alberta Health.

The University of Alberta is one of the top 100 teaching and research universities in the world serving 36,000 students with more than 11,000 faculty and staff. Founded a century ago, the University has an annual budget in excess of $1 billion and attracts more than $48 million in external research funding.

Consideration of applications will continue until the position is filled. Interested applicants should submit their curriculum vitae and a letter ofapplication.
