Anatomical Pathologist

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Providence Health Care is seeking a full-time anatomical pathologist beginning January 4th, 2022. The successful candidate will join a group of 17 anatomical pathologists based at St. Paul’s Hospital, a 455-bed tertiary academic hospital located in downtown Vancouver, BC. It is the largest facility within Providence Health Care and one of two major UBC-affiliated teaching hospitals in the lower mainland. The hospital has major programs in breast surgery, gastroenterology, colorectal surgery, cardiology, nephrology, endocrinology, and HIV/AIDS. Our laboratory also includes divisions of Medical Microbiology, Clinical Chemistry, and
Hematopathology/Transfusion Medicine.

The laboratory provides an opportunity to work in multiple areas of Anatomical Pathology, including
surgical pathology, frozen sections, non-gynecological cytopathology, and autopsy pathology. The
practice is a broadly based anatomical pathology service and a wide-range of knowledge and
proficiency is required. Subspecialty expertise currently exists in gastrointestinal pathology, breast
pathology, cytopathology, dermatopathology, renal pathology, and cardiovascular pathology.

Applicants must either hold or be eligible for certification by the Royal College of Physicians &
Surgeons of Canada in Anatomical Pathology or General Pathology. Preference will be given to
candidates with fellowship training in genitourinary pathology at a major academic center or
demonstrated clinical expertise in this area. Additional expertise in cardiovascular and/or pulmonary
pathology will be considered assets but not required. The successful candidate will possess excellent
general surgical pathology skills with strong communication abilities. Candidates must be eligible for
licensure in British Columbia.

Teaching of pathology residents is an integral component of this position and preference will be given
to applicants who can provide evidence of current involvement and commitment to education. A strong
record of experience in clinical research will be considered an asset. The successful candidate will be
a member of the UBC Clinical Faculty; academic rank will be commensurate with the candidate’s
academic record.

Providence Health Care hires on the basis of merit and are committed to employment equity. We
encourage all qualified persons to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will
be given priority.

Interested candidates are invited to submit a letter of interest and their curriculum vitae to:
