Island Health’s Division of Anatomical Pathology has an opportunity for an anatomical pathologist to join the team at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, British Columbia.

You have a Fellowship in Anatomic Pathology with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (or its equivalent) and are eligible for licensure in the province of British Columbia. You are an excellent diagnostician with superlative interpersonal and collaborative abilities. You have a broad experience in anatomical pathology, but preferably also have subspecialty fellowship training or a proven expertise in ENT pathology, and an interest in one or more of breast pathology, pulmonary pathology, cytopathology and neuropathology.   Most departmental members have fellowship training in their area of interest and this is strongly favoured for new recruits. Your primary duties will relate to your areas of specialization, but participation in the group coverage of the frozen section and autopsy services is also required. A commitment to teaching is also expected, as you will mentor students of the Island Medical Program at the University of Victoria and physicians from a variety of programs.

In this position, you will be eligible for appointment in the Island Health Department of Laboratory & Imaging Medicine, and as an Associate of the Victoria Pathology Consulting Corporation. You may also apply for a clinical appointment with the Department of Pathology at the University of British Columbia.

Victoria, British Columbia’s scenic capital, is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty and enviable quality of life, this is an ideal place to pursue your medical career and enjoy a one-of-a-kind lifestyle.  Few areas in the world match BC’s scope of outdoor activities, with Vancouver Island offering everything from skiing, snowboarding, surfing, golfing, and world-class fishing. With Victoria’s temperate climate, its rich heritage and vibrant cultural scene, it provides the very best of urban and rural living.
