Regular Full Time
Abbotsford, BC, Canada
Abbotsford, the “City in the Country”, is nestled in the shadow of majestic Mt. Baker, in the eastern Fraser Valley, and has a blend of modern urban living and a friendly country atmosphere. Thanks to the comfortable west coast climate and surrounding geography, a variety of recreational opportunities are nearby. Abbotsford is at a short distance drive to Vancouver, BC and Seattle, WA.
The role of the Medical Oncologist/Head of Medical Oncology Department is to continue to develop the clinical and academic priorities for the Systemic Therapy program at the Abbotsford Centre and to foster excellence in clinical care, teaching and academic productivity among members of the program. In addition to clinical service, medical oncologists are actively involved in undergraduate and residency teaching and hold appointments in the Division of Medical Oncology at the University of British Columbia. There is also a significant commitment to clinical research and innovation with active participation in local, national and international clinical trials.
In BC we have some of the best cancer control results in the country, with access to more state-of-the-art drug therapies than any other province. Our provincial structure is the key to our success and ample opportunity exists for collaboration across and within our tumour groups.
