Part of the Stollery Children’s Hospital, this clinic is situated in the Child Health Ambulatory Pavilion of the Royal Alexandra Hospital. Given its location, many patients are from the inner city, and because of the high-risk delivery obstetrical centre and tertiary NICU, many clinic patients include follow-up care of premature infants, and babies born to high-risk mothers.

The clinic provides a combination of:

1. Ambulatory (out-patient) care:

a. Consultation care

b. Emergency appointments for established clinic patients,

c. Anticipatory guidance and follow-up visits for both well and medically and/or socially complex children

2. In-patient care at the RAH: (on assigned clinic days and on assigned call nights/weekends)

a. Patient (newborn) rounds

b. Consultation service to in-patient child psychiatry

c. Consultation service to the Emergency Room

The clinic is composed of six general pediatricians (each with two – four days/week in clinic), and once a week has a pediatric gynecologist and a pediatric urologist. The clinic is supported by multiple nursing and administrative staff, and further augmented by allied health colleagues: social worker, lactation consultant, dietician, occupational therapist and a child-life health worker.

The clinic is a designated teaching clinic for both the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Medical Education Programs at the University of Alberta. Third year medical students spend three weeks in clinic with the general pediatricians, including four half-days doing in-patient newborn teaching rounds. Medical students from years 1, 2, and 4 also come to the clinic for observation/shadowing and elective experience. Pediatric residents participate in a continuity clinic, and other pediatric residents come for their ambulatory clinic rotation and/or further elective experience.

Locum Responsibilities:

- Provide quality medical care in all areas listed above two – three days/week

- Provide quality medical education to all assigned learners

- Participate in the on-call group (1 in 8 weekdays and 1 in 8 weekends)

- Participate in monthly clinic staff meetings

- Consistent demonstration of the AHS values: Compassion, Accountability, Respect, Excellence and Safety (CARES), and the values of the Stollery Children’s Hospital: Accountability, Respect, Energy, Inclusiveness, Altruism and Leadership (AERIAL)

The successful candidate will:

- Have an MD degree and FRCPC in Pediatrics

- Be in good standing with the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta

- Have an interest and ideally demonstrated excellence in clinical teaching

- Possess excellent verbal and written English language skills; an additional language would be an asset

- Have an ability to work collaboratively, professionally and promote team-building with all clinic members

Be able to demonstrate compassion and sensitivity

Remuneration will be based on the income scale of a Academic Medicine health Services Plan.
