Clinical Neonatologist

Edmonton, Alberta

Alberta Health Services, in partnership with the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta, is inviting applications for neonatologists positions in the Edmonton Zone. The successful candidate will join a group of 24 division members in the Department of Pediatrics.

The Northern Alberta Neonatal Program, providing newborn services to Northern and Central Alberta, invites applications for two Clinical Academic neonatologist positions. Successful candidates should have completed Neonatal fellowship training and should have FRCP(C) or equivalent qualifications in Pediatrics, and will be expected to meet eligibility for licensure in the Province of Alberta.

With over 28,000 deliveries in Edmonton referral area and 3200 admissions per year, five clinical sites deliver the full range of tertiary Neonatology services, including general and cardiovascular surgery, and neonatal follow-up. The Stollery Children’s Hospital houses the Prairie Province Pediatric and Neonatal Cardiovascular Program, with complex and surgical neonatal admissions going to the David Schiff NICU. The Royal Alexandra Hospital is the tertiary perinatal centre for Northern and Central Alberta, NWT, NU and Yukon. The level II sites, at the Grey Nuns and Misericordia Community Hospitals, have over 9,000 deliveries between them.

The Neonatal and Infant Follow-up Program at the Glenrose Hospital provides assessment and follow-up of high-risk infants. The Neonatal Transport Program transfers about 500 babies per year by land and air. There is a RCPSC Neonatal Subspecialty Residency Training Program attracting national and international trainees. Active research programs exist in clinical and basic areas of neonatal medicine and transitional patho-physiology, in collaboration with various departments of the University of Alberta.

The successful candidate will have clinical service and on-call responsibilities at a combination of level III and/or II nurseries. A teaching commitment is mandatory (learners include physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, allied health practitioners, and their respective trainees). Neonatologists are expected to develop a balance of clinical, academic and administrative responsibilities. Successful applicants, whose skill sets also align well with mentoring, will be encouraged to apply for a Clinical Academic appointment in the Department of Pediatrics, University of Alberta, which will be considered under a separate process through the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry

Starting salary is commensurate with level of fellowship training and experience.


Interested candidates should submit a letter of Intent, a Curriculum Vitae outlining current clinical, administrative and leadership experience, research interests along with three names of referees by April 30, 2016; however, the competition will remain open until the positions are filled.
