The Department of Psychiatry at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the University of Toronto is seeking a Clinician-teacher with scholarly achievement to start on January 4, 2021.  The successful candidate will join the ambulatory (outpatient) program in the Division of Youth Psychiatry, working with youth ages 14-24 with complex mood and anxiety disorders, and will take a lead role in the Youth Division’s Urgent Assessment Clinic, providing urgent subspecialty consultations to the Sunnybrook Emergency Department.  The successful candidate will be expected to participate fully in the clinical and academic interprofessional activities of the Department of Psychiatry, including the psychiatry call system and teaching program.

The staff psychiatrist should have a track record of excellence in teaching, given the frequent presence of learners within the Department. Advanced training in urgent care, mood and anxiety disorders, and/or trauma would be an asset.   

Applicants should be certified (or eligible for certification) by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, must be licensed (or eligible for licensure) in the Province of Ontario and be eligible for a full-time academic appointment in the Department of Psychiatry, Faculty of Medicine at University of Toronto.
