Clinical and Metabolic Geneticist
University Health Network/Mount Sinai Hospital
Department of Medicine, University of Toronto
The Department of Medicine at University Health Network (UHN) and Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) is seeking to recruit a clinical and metabolic geneticist to join a growing team at The Fred A. Litwin Family Centre in Genetic Medicine. The successful candidate will be eligible for a clinical academic appointment in the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto.
The Fred A. Litwin Family Centre in Genetic Medicine oversees an adult genetics program serving a diverse population in the Greater Toronto catchment area and beyond. We are a rapidly growing program with a multi-disciplinary team that includes clinical and metabolic geneticists, genetic counsellors, dietitians, a social worker and administrative staff. The Centre serves as a training site for the University of Toronto post-graduate training program in Medical Genetics and, as the only dedicated adult genetics clinic in Ontario, manages care across all aspects of clinical and metabolic genetic indications. The successful candidate would be involved in the general genetics clinic, with a focus on metabolic genetics, and should have a strong aptitude in undergraduate and post-graduate MD teaching. There is also ample opportunity for involvement in self-initiated and collaborative academic research.
The successful candidate must hold an MD degree and should hold or be eligible for certification in medical genetics by The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (or equivalent, e.g. American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics) and/or be eligible for clinical or biochemical genetics fellowship certification from the Canadian College of Medical Geneticists, and should be eligible for licensure with the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Ontario.
