Academic Hospitalists – General Internal Medicine

Academic Hospitalists – General Internal Medicine

The Division of General Internal Medicine within the Department of Medicine at Queen’s University invites applications from general internists for two Academic Hospitalist positions.

Division members provide inpatient care on the Clinical Teaching Units, resident-independent units as well as supervision and teaching to medical students and residents. Clinical duties also involve inpatient consultative services and participation in GIM clinics.

Growth of the Division of General Internal Medicine (GIM) and high patient volumes have necessitated the establishment of these additional hospitalist positions, which require internists to manage acute and sub-acute care patients in a variety of settings. Expertise in thrombosis or addictions will be considered an asset.

In addition to a major focus of providing exemplary clinical service, the successful applicant would be expected to teach at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, engage in collaborative research, and contribute to the administrative functions of the University and Hospitals. It is expected that candidates will exhibit a strong potential for innovative and scholarly research, as well as provide evidence of a strong academic portfolio with demonstrable teaching experience. Candidates must also demonstrate strong leadership skills, excellent communication skills and the ability to work in a collaborative environment.

Physicians must be eligible for licensure by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. Applicants must either hold or are eligible for certification by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in General Internal Medicine. 

Members of the Department of Medicine enjoy a competitive compensation package, including a generous benefit plan. Academic rank will be commensurate with experience.
