The Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Program (SMRCP) at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre is building a Complex Malignant Hematology (CMH) program. We are seeking a complex malignant hematologist-oncologist to join our growing and dynamic multidisciplinary team. Qualified candidates with exceptional patient care and teamwork skills as well as a desire to be actively involved in program development are encouraged to apply. Candidates must be comfortable with a position that will evolve as the program continues to grow.
The Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Program (SMRCP) oversees the quality and delivery of cancer services for the residents of the North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), which includes 5 sub-geographies: Barrie and Area, Collingwood and Area, Midland Penetanguishene and Area, Orillia and Area, and Muskoka. The Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre is a 75,000-square foot comprehensive cancer centre employing more than 200 professional staff. It includes 34 chemotherapy treatment spaces complete with a satellite pharmacy, 3 radiation machines and CT simulator suite to plan treatments, 2 large outpatient clinic areas, RIVA – state-of-the-art robotic chemotherapy medication preparation, and in-patient unit for cancer and palliative care.
The successful CMH candidate will be involved in direct care of patients with acute leukemia, including induction and consolidation, post-BMT transplant care, multiple myeloma and lymphoma who require autologous stem cell transplantation. The candidate will work closely with RVH leadership and administration to plan and build an acute leukemia program over the next 3 years. Experience in leadership and healthcare administration would be an asset. Participation in call coverage for the hematology service will be required (including urgent benign and malignant issues).
In addition to clinical care and administration, candidates will be involved in research and teaching. RVH is an official teaching site of the University of Toronto’s accredited Family Medicine Residency Program. Research is supported and encouraged through the RVH Research Institute with an established research team within the cancer program.
