The hospital encompasses three main sites – Credit Valley Hospital (CVH), Mississauga Hospital (MH), and Queensway Health Centre (QHC) – offering a full range of acute care hospital services, as well as a variety of community-based specialized programs.

We are seeking one (1) full-time pathologist with expertise in hematopathology to join our Laboratory Medicine and Genetics Program, providing clinical services to all three sites of the Hospital. The preferred candidate will be trained and experienced in hematological pathology and anatomical or general pathology, with demonstrated interest in neoplastic hematolymphoid pathology and coagulation. Training and/or experience in transfusion medicine and/or molecular hematopathology would be an asset.

The successful candidate will be part of a group of 19 pathologists, one medical microbiologist, one PhD clinical chemist and three PhD cytogenomicists who provide laboratory services to ten clinical programs. The Laboratory Medicine and Genetics Program has a strong immunohistochemistry laboratory, state of the art flow cytometry facility, and houses the regional Molecular Genetics Program which includes next generation sequencing.

In collaboration with two colleagues, the successful candidate will be responsible for blood films, bone marrow aspirates/biopsies, flow cytometry, lymph node pathology, and coagulation. Opportunity exists for involvement in transfusion medicine, molecular hematopathology, and/or surgical pathology. The successful candidate will be expected to participate fully in our quality management program and multidisciplinary cancer conferences.

Trillium Health Partners is an academic teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Toronto.
