This is an academic position with substantial cardiac resources within the region, primarily at two academic health centres (St. Boniface Hospital and Health Sciences Centre), serving the needs of 1.2 million people in Manitoba, Nunavut, and Northwestern Ontario.

The Arrhythmia Service provides comprehensive consultative, procedural and outpatient follow-up care to the catchment area.

The Pacemaker and Defibrillator Clinic follows 6,000 device patients with 13,000 patient visits per year.

There are presently 29 full-time academic cardiologists within the Section of Cardiology with major clinical and investigative responsibilities in interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance, nuclear cardiology, cardiac rehabilitation, and heart failure and cardiac transplantation.

The successful applicant will have academic potential, including demonstration of effective interdisciplinary communication, a record of prior training in electrophysiology and complex device implantation as well as competency in general cardiology. They must also have clinical and teaching skills to further the aims of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Cardiology. This is a geographical, full-time, contingent position commencing January 1, 2018, or as soon thereafter as possible, for a term of two years, renewable upon favourable review.  Salary and rank will be dependent upon qualifications and experience.

Candidates must have senior specialty qualifications in Cardiology in the country of current practice and must be eligible for registration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba.
