DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY
PLASTIC SURGEON – full time OPPORTUNITY
The Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Windsor Regional Hospital in Windsor, Ontario is inviting applications for two full time plastic surgeons.
The scope of practice involves all aspects of plastic surgery, including hand surgery, breast surgery, skin cancers, cosmetic surgery, and complex wound management. Access to a top tier hospital ambulatory care clinic with capacity for minor procedures and operating room resources are provided. On-call obligations for the catchment area are expected between 1-in-4 to 1-in-5.
Windsor Regional Hospital is the third largest community teaching hospital in the province and the 11th largest overall with 483 acute care beds. Specialized surgical services are provided for more than 400,000 people in Windsor and Essex County. In-house surgical services include General Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, Urology, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Gynecology, ENT and Non-Cardiac Vascular Surgery. The Ouellette campus is designated as the Lead Trauma Hospital for the Erie St. Clair region.
The Windsor-Essex area is ecologically rich with extensive parkland. The low-latitude geographic location and proximity to Lake Erie and Lake St. Claire portends a warmer climate that extends activities such a golfing, gardening, and water sports. Windsor offers the unique opportunities of a larger metropolitan area and the benefits of a smaller community. Living directly across the border from Detroit, Michigan places you on a cosmopolitan stage where arts, culture, big league sports, and entertainment are just moments away. Detroit International Airport is easily accessible and acts as a major hub for most airlines. Best of all, you can enjoy all of these big-city advantages while living in the relative tranquility and lower costs of a much smaller, friendlier community.
Certification in Plastic Surgery from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and an independent practice license with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario is required.
WRH has an affiliation with the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry and professional staff participate in surgical education at the undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Prospective candidates should send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and a list of three referees with contact information (at least one should be Chief of Plastic Surgery or Program Director) to:
Dr. Kristina Lutz, Division Head of Plastics, Windsor Regional Hospital
