Academic Clinical Pharmacologists
McMaster University, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and Hamilton Health Sciences are recruiting Clinical Pharmacologists to join our expanding division in the Department of Medicine. At present, clinical pharmacologists are a core part of the internal medicine and emergency teaching programs and clinical services at the Juravinski Hospital and St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton. Our aim is to build a clinical pharmacology and toxicology consultation service.
As an academic clinical pharmacologist, you will be involved in a number of clinical scholarly activities, including clinical teaching unit team supervision and consultation, MD based teams, Rapid Assessment Clinics, a newly constructed ambulatory care clinic, drug policy and medication safety consultation and committees. You will be part of a regional clinical pharmacology program integrated with the regional General Internal Medicine or Geriatrics service and may work at more than one site. Successful applicants will be appointed to an academic rank commensurate with their experience.
An attractive remuneration package includes fee for service billing, on-call stipends, and membership in the Department of Medicine’s Alternate Funding Plan. The Division of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics is one of the top academic divisions in the Department of Medicine, based on educational and research excellence. The Department of Medicine supports an award-winning residency program recognized nationally for innovation in education and McMaster is ranked as the most research intensive university in Canada.
Prospective candidates will hold specialty certification in Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics and must be licensed (or eligible for licensure) in the Province of Ontario. Certification in either Internal Medicine or Geriatric Medicine is an asset.
