This is an academic position with substantial cardiac resources within the region, primarily at two academic health centres (St. Boniface Hospital and Health Sciences Centre), serving the needs of Manitoba, Nunavut, and Northwestern Ontario, with a catchment of over 1.2 million population. The advanced heart failure and cardiac transplant team is located at St. Boniface Hospital. There is a dedicated inpatient advanced heart failure service providing consultation and care to pre and post-transplant patients, ventricular assist device, and emergent mechanical circulatory support cases including ECMO. The outpatient heart failure clinic is a shared practice model including physicians, nurses, and nurse practitioners responsible for 400 new patients and over 1700 follow-up visits per year. The heart failure program has a remote monitoring clinic as well as a clinical and research database which includes 4500 patients to date. The team actively enrolls in clinical trials and is recognized nationally in the heart failure community.

There are presently 26 full-time academic cardiologists within the Section of Cardiology with major clinical and investigative responsibilities in interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance, nuclear cardiology, cardiac rehabilitation, and heart failure and cardiac transplantation.

The successful applicant will have academic potential, including demonstration of effective interdisciplinary communication, a record of prior training in heart failure, mechanical circulatory support and cardiac transplant, as well as competency in general cardiology. He/she must also have clinical and teaching skills to further the aims of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in cardiology.
