Alberta Health Services, in partnership with the University of Alberta, Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, is inviting applications for a clinical sub-specialist position in Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) to join the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Edmonton, Alberta.

The Maternal-Fetal Medicine program is based out of the Lois Hole Hospital for Women (LHHW) on the Royal Alexandra Hospital campus. The MFM program sees referrals from Edmonton, Central and Northern Alberta, Nunavut, North West Territories and Western Canadian provinces. The catchment area for the program within Alberta sees 25 000 births or more per year. The LHHW is a tertiary, acute care hospital consisting of 20 full-time Obstetricians/Gynecologists in private practice and 24 sub-specialists. More than 7000 births occur at this site alone. The Women’s Health program is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care, medical education, clinical innovation, and research.

The successful candidate will join a group of seven clinical and academic MFM sub-specialists who provide high-risk pregnancy consultation and ultrasound services. This group is part of a large multidisciplinary team including medical genetics, obstetric medicine, neonatology, pediatric cardiology, in addition to numerous other specialties. The practice includes care for both in-patients and out-patients, with over 31 000 patient encounters seen annually. There are excellent opportunities for collaborative clinical research and/or participation in CME education, which is encouraged and supported.

The Royal Alexandra Hospital is affiliated with the University of Alberta and serves as an important training hospital for residents and students. The successful candidate will also apply for a Clinical Academic appointment in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, University of Alberta. This will be considered under a separate process through the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry which has been internationally recognized as among the world’s top 50 medical schools and as one of Canada’s premier health-education institutions and is located in Edmonton.
