Department Head Search

This page is to keep you updated on the progress of the Department Head search.

The advertisement for the Department Head position has been posted in a variety of publications and job forums over the last few months. It has also been shared across the country with other OBGYN Departments and a variety of mailing lists in most of our sub-specialties.

Once all applicants are submitted the Advisory Committee will meet to shortlist the candidates and set up interviews. The Advisory Committee consists of:

  • Chris Lovato (Chair)
  • Natalie Bjurman
  • Lori Brotto
  • Sarah Finlayson
  • David Huntsman
  • Ken Lim
  • Andi Martin
  • Steven Miller
  • Susan Wannamaker
  • Paul Yong

The group is made up of elected Departmental members and FoM Dean representatives.

After the initial interviews, those short-listed for a site visit will be invited to Vancouver. During that time a number of on-site meetings will be arranged with the following groups. If you receive an email please try and fit it into your busy schedule if you would like to have a say in who our next Department Head will be. There will also be a presentation from the candidates on their research portfolio and also their strategy for the Department moving forward.
