IWK Health is recruiting a Chief for the IWK Department of Diagnostic Imaging. This is an outstanding opportunity for an experienced and accomplished individual with demonstrated leadership, clinical and academic credibility, and strategic vision to direct and manage clinical and academic affairs in the Department within an integrated health system.

IWK Health provides quality care to women, children, youth, and families in the Maritimes and beyond. It is engaged in leading-edge research, works to promote healthy lifestyles for families, and supports education opportunities for health professionals and other learners. Services provided by IWK Health are delivered through three programs: Children's Health, Mental Health and Addictions, and Women's and Newborn Health.

The Department of Diagnostic Imaging is comprised of pediatric radiology, pediatric radiology subspecialties, and women’s imaging. The Chief of IWK Diagnostic Imaging will be responsible to the IWK CEO through the Vice President Medicine, Quality & Safety for all medical and scientific administration and functioning of the IWK department, and will work in partnership with the Operations Director to ensure the effective provision of diagnostic imaging services for our population. In addition, the Chief will be responsible to the Head of the Dalhousie Department of Radiology for all academic activities of the department and its members.
