As the successful candidate, you will provide expert consultative services to physicians and other health care providers and collaborate with colleagues in the provision of family-centered diagnostic programs. Effective communication skills are essential. Opportunities for teaching, research, and administrative endeavours within and outside the division are available and encouraged.
Candidates must hold an MD or equivalent, be eligible for licensure in the Province of British Columbia, and have or be eligible for certification in Anatomical Pathology by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Preference will be given to candidates with experience, recognized fellowship, or qualification in pediatric, fetal, and obstetric anatomical pathology.
