An outstanding opportunity is available to join the Division of Developmental Pediatrics at BC Children’s Hospital/Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the University of British Columbia as a clinician with a broad range of abilities in assessing children with neurodiversity. Depending on the individual’s experience the work will be within a combination of programs including acute rehabilitation, neuromotor, and diagnostic assessments for a broad range of developmental concerns including cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual developmental disorder, and other complex neurodevelopmental disorders. Experience and comfort with social pediatrics is also hoped for in this position.

The Child Development and Rehabilitation Program (CDR) at Sunny Hill is a provincial resource providing consultation and community support for the management of children with disabilities. You will be expected to work with the inter-disciplinary teams and provide medical expertise to support these teams.

The Division has about 20 faculty members and works within a program management model with excellent inter-professional collaborative opportunities. The Division has a Royal College approved training program in Developmental Pediatrics.

The successful candidate will have a fellowship in Pediatrics from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and subspecialty training and certification in Developmental Pediatrics (FRCPC) or equivalent training within another country. The successful candidate must be eligible to obtain a specialist’s license to practice medicine in British Columbia.

UBC and BCCH hire on the basis of merit and are committed to employment equity. All qualified persons are encouraged to apply. We especially welcome applications from members of visible minority groups, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to engage productively with diverse communities. Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority

Reconciliation is an ongoing process and a shared responsibility for all of us. The BC Governments’ unanimous passage of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act was a significant step forward in this journey—one that all health authorities are expected to support as we work in cooperation with Indigenous Peoples to establish a clear and sustainable path to lasting reconciliation. True reconciliation will take time and ongoing commitment to work with Indigenous Peoples as they move toward self-determination. Guiding these efforts Crown agencies must remain focused on creating opportunities that implement the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Mandate.
