Cambridge Memorial Hospital (CMH) is looking for a Gastroenterologist/Hepatologist.
CMH is undergoing an exciting Capital Redevelopment Project with anticipated significant expansion of services over the next few years, particularly in our Subspecialty Programs.
The current Internal Medicine Department are a dynamic group of 14 Internal Medicine Specialists seeking to expand our sub-specialist complement. The Medicine Service currently includes 2 Cardiologists, 2 Gastroenterologists, 3 Respirologists, 5 General Internists, and 2 full time Intensivists. We are in the process of recruiting a number of other sub specialists as well to add to the above complement.
The Cambridge Memorial Hospital facilities include 1 endoscopy suite operating 5 days a week, and adding a second endoscopy suite to add additional endoscopic volumes. Upon completion of the final phase of the Capital Redevelopment Project, CMH will have 3 endoscopy suites.
With service expansion, CMH is in the process of redesigning our inpatient ICU/CCU/Stepdown/Telemetry services, as well as inpatient Medicine program. This will include changing our general internal medicine program to include subspecialty call coverage, including gastroenterology. Furthermore, as part of service expansion, CMH is in the process of developing an enhanced hepatology program, to provide service for advanced liver disease for the community of Cambridge as well as to the Region of Waterloo-Wellington.
CMH currently has 2 gastroenterologists, one of whom has clinical interest in inflammatory bowel disease and the other has clinical interest in liver disease. However, both gastroenterologists have broad general community practices. CMH is looking for a gastroenterologist with hepatology expertise, preferably fellowship training in an accredited training program. General comfort with other areas of general gastroenterology is also expected. The successful candidate will have access to endoscopic resources at CMH comparable to current gastroenterology resources. Furthermore, a community based endoscopy clinic is located in close proximity to CMH that may allow the successful candidate to potentially access additional endoscopic resources.
Applicants must be licensed with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and have an independent practice license or eligible for same. Certification or eligibility for certification in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology through the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons is also required.
On call requirements may include coverage of all new ICU/CCU/Stepdown/Telemetry until subspecialty call program fully established in late 2018. Subsequently, call responsibility will be in gastroenterology only.
