Job Description

We are seeking team-oriented and professional Ophthalmologist (FRCSC) to be part of our dynamic and expanding division.

Individuals with special interest and expertise in Cornea, Retina, Neuro-Ophthalmology and/or Pediatric Ophthalmology will be a definite asset and deserve preference.

Ophthalmology services are based out of the Pasqua Hospital, which is a community-based hospital and referral centre specializing in Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Plastic Surgery, General Surgery and Urology . A broad range of ophthalmic services are offered at the Pasqua Hospital Eye Centre. The Eye Centre is an ambulatory care unit, which provides both diagnostic and therapeutic services to the population of Southern Saskatchewan. A multidisciplinary team consisting of Registered Nurses, Orthoptists, Licensed Practical Nurses, Clerk/Receptionists, Ophthalmic Assistants, Ophthalmic Photographers and Ophthalmologists, provide client care. The Eye Centre coordinates its activities with other hospital departments, external agencies and health care professionals, to provide optimal client care.

Call coverage is a requirement for the position and is currently 1:10, Monday to Monday 0800 to 0800 which covers out of town calls, Emergency Departments and Ophthalmology after hour calls. There is a separate rotation for long weekends. In addition to fee-for-service, you would be eligible for any on-call retainer consistent with the Specialist Emergency Coverage Program.

Physicians may have the opportunity to teach undergraduate and post-graduate education at the University of Saskatchewan (USask). The USask campus is located on the shores of the South Saskatchewan River in Saskatoon, a city with a diverse and thriving economic base and a vibrant cultural life. USask is a research-intensive institution with 22,000 students and 7,000 faculty and staff, and a strong reputation for innovation and excellence. It is home to the newly constructed Academic Health Sciences Complex and two of the largest science projects in the country – the Canadian Light Source synchrotron and the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization/International Vaccine Centre. A users group is available for collaborative research with clinical faculty using the $173.5 million Canadian Light Source synchrotron, owned by the University of Saskatchewan. 

Job Qualifications

Successful candidates will hold certification from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) in Ophthalmology and be eligible for regular licensure from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CPSS) to practice in Saskatchewan.

This individual should be a team player, be able to interact effectively with patients, colleagues, staff and management, and function well in a high volume environment with a commitment to provision of high quality patient and family centered care.

In accordance with immigration requirements, preference will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada.
