The Division of Hematology is experiencing substantial clinical and academic growth.  We are seeking a locum hematologist to join us to help provide clinical care to patients, along with participation in educational and research activities.  The clinical focus of this position is out-patient and day hospital care of transplant and cellular therapy (TCT) patients.   The locum would provide care to both new and follow-up patients at The Ottawa Hospital – General Campus.

The 18 faculty members in the Malignant Hematology and Transplant / Cellular Therapy Programs work within well-defined and integrated clinical and research groups, with a variety of academic pursuits.  The TCT program anticipates performing >200 transplants and >50 CAR T Cell procedures in 2021.

The Transplant and Cellular Therapy Program provides cellular therapies to a large population of patients from across Ontario, west Quebec, and other regions of Canada.  We are one of a handful of programs in Canada approved and active in the delivery of Immune Effector Cell therapies, with both commercial and research product activity.
