Pediatric Endocrinologist




The Division of Endocrinology in the Department of Pediatrics at Dalhousie University and the IWK Health Centre is seeking a colleague to fill a full-time academic position (1.0 FTE) at the assistant, associate, or full professor level.  While the individual will be expected to participate in diabetes and general endocrine clinical care, an individual with a willingness to support trans health is required.  Other areas of special interest in Endocrinology and Diabetes are welcomed.   Research or teaching as an academic focus is a possibility, with an appropriate portion of FTE to support this, based on qualifications. 

Call and service will be shared amongst 3.8 pediatric endocrinologists.  The Endocrine division has active interests in various areas including diabetes, trans health and involvement in collaborative or industry sponsored research in other areas of endocrinology.   Education of medical students, residents and allied health professionals is another area of strength within the Division.  The Endocrine physicians are supported by a strong interdisciplinary team (dedicated Diabetes Educators (nurses and dieticians), Endocrine nurses, a research coordinator, social work and booking and clerical staff).  The successful candidate will have a keen interest in academic medicine, the ability to collaborate effectively with all members of the multi-disciplinary team and will be expected to participate in team-based health care and teaching, both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The IWK Health Centre is the tertiary pediatric and women’s Health Centre for the three Maritime Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, with a combined population of 2 million.
