Our client, the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA), is the largest employer in Saskatchewan with a budget of over $4.6 billion, employing approximately 45,000 staff and is responsible for the delivery of healthcare to the province. The SHA operates 64 hospitals with 2,500 acute care patient beds and approximately 9,000 long term care beds.

The College of Medicine (CoM) at the University of Saskatchewan is home to population health, biomedical sciences, clinical departments, administrative divisions and the School of Rehabilitation Science. Within the CoM, there are 2,000 faculty and 700 employees working with over 2,100 learners, providing a full range of accredited academic programming that includes the sole medical school in the province.

The health system of Saskatchewan is comprehensive, with the goal of improving the health and well-being of the people of Saskatchewan. As such, the SHA and the CoM, operating in a complex and dynamic healthcare environment, partner to align strategies and plans that integrate best practices from the academic setting into the clinical environment and vice versa. This alignment contributes to the achievement of the province’s healthcare goals, with patients and families at the centre of the care delivered.

Join the SHA and CoM leadership team as Provincial Department Head, Public Health and Preventive Medicine.

The Provincial Department Head (PDH) is a unique position reporting directly to both the Department Head of Community Health and Epidemiology within the CoM, and the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of the SHA.  The PDH operates in a matrix leadership role that spans the CoM and SHA, with the goal of achieving Saskatchewan’s healthcare and academic missions.

The new PDH will possess an FRCPC in Public Health and Preventive Medicine, or, with an equivalent level of training and experience, be eligible for licensure in the Province of Saskatchewan and can be based in any Saskatchewan community.
