We are currently seeking a full-time, 1.0 AFP funded, Hematologist who will be responsible for coverage of a malignant hematology practice while also taking part in benign hematology work within our hospital clinic. You would be joining our existing group of two hematologists, five medical oncologists, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, a drug navigator, social workers and dieticians. The clinic is very well supported and no overhead is expected.

We also have a dedicated outpatient palliative care clinic and community palliative care team that assists with patient care. Interdisciplinary care is shared with tertiary care facilities, in addition to regional cancer centers offering radiation. Bone marrow biopsies and treatments such as IV iron, phlebotomies, etc are all coordinated in our Medical Day Unit. Multidisciplinary tumour boards are held biweekly in conjunction with Southlake Regional Care Centre. We are also a proud member of the Princess Margaret Cancer Care Network, with streamlined access to consultations and collaborative care with the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

Call duties would include seeing new hematology referrals for patients admitted to hospital or the emergency department.
