Trauma and Acute Care Surgery Locum: Vancouver General Hospital

The Vancouver General Hospital is an academic Level 1 trauma centre affiliated with the University of British Columbia which receives tertiary/quaternary referrals from across the province of British Columbia. The Section of Trauma Surgery staffs clinical teaching services for both Trauma Surgery and Acute Care General Surgery.

Our group of 5 academic surgeons is offering a limited locum placement (June 24, 2019 to January 20, 2020) for a qualified candidate with fellowship training in trauma seeking to further consolidate career interests in research, education, global health and/or administration related to trauma and/or acute care surgery. We offer a minimum of 14 clinical weeks (Trauma and Acute Care Surgery) with an expected income of $200,000 with opportunity for additional trauma night-call. Licensure for the independent practice in the province of British Columbia and malpractice insurance is required.

The ideal candidate would pursue an established research interest over the course of the period for which he/she would apply for independent funding. The locum would also participate in all activities of the Section of Trauma Surgery including teaching at the medical student, resident and fellow level, quality assurance, and clinical care improvement activities such as practice guideline development. This is a unique opportunity for a recently qualified general surgeon with trauma sub-specialization to build academic professional experience through collaboration with an accomplished group of trauma surgeons in a major Canadian trauma centre.

Interested candidates are asked to forward a letter of interest and curriculum vitae to:
