The Department of Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine, Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta, in partnership with Alberta Health Services (AHS) in Edmonton, Alberta is inviting applications for two zone wide Staff Anesthesiologist positions based primarily at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.

A team of more than 160 department members, the Department of Anesthesiology is composed of physicians, anesthetists, scientists, educators and allied health professionals who provide services to ten Edmonton hospitals, and referrals from northern and western
Alberta.  We are a major referral centre for Northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories with a referral based of over 1.5 million people. The Anesthesiology group provides services to patients at the Cross Cancer Institute, Grey Nuns Community Hospital, Leduc Community Hospital, Misericordia Community Hospital, Royal Alexandra Hospital, Stollery Children’s Hospital, Sturgeon Community Hospital and the University of Alberta Hospital.

The Royal Alexandra Hospital is located in the heart of Edmonton and provides general and specialized medical and surgical health services. As one of Alberta's largest surgical facilities, the hospital plays a lead role in the expansion and development of minimally invasive surgery, a rapidly evolving technique that helps patients heal and return to productive lives faster.

The successful applicants shall have certification in Anesthesiology with the Royal College of Physicians of Canada and be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.   Additional training in regional, acute pain, vascular, obstetrical and cardiac will be considered an asset.   Remuneration will be based on a fee-for service model with billing directly to Alberta Health.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
