Job Description

We are seeking full-time Anesthesiologist to joing our team at Vancouver Coastal Health!

The Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Care at Vancouver Acute is looking for full-time Anesthesiologists to join our team. With over 60 members, we are one of the largest anesthesia departments in Canada and provide all anesthesia care at Vancouver Acute’s two acute care hospitals, VGH and UBCH. With the imminent opening of a new surgical suite at VGH we are looking to expand our team and seek anesthesiologists for both locum and permanent positions.

Members of the department are involved in all aspects of adult anesthesia sub-specialty care including perioperative medicine, intraoperative anesthesia care, critical care and pain management in an academic and quaternary care setting. Vancouver Acute is British Columbia’s provincial referral centre for a large number of surgical programs including neurosurgery, cardiac surgery (including major aortic reconstruction), thoracic surgery, spine surgery, transplant surgery (liver, lung, kidney and pancreas), complex urological, gynecological and general oncology surgery, complex joint reconstruction and robotic surgery. Vancouver Acute is a level 1 trauma centre and the sole Canadian ELSO gold-level ECMO site. In addition to providing operating room care for over 32,000 patients per year, members of the department see 10,000 patients per year in the Anesthesia Consult Clinic and provide acute pain management following surgery for over 3000 patients per year. The Department is actively involved in medical student and resident education and offers several subspecialty fellowships.


  • Applicants must possess a MD degree and should be near completion of their residency training in Anesthesiology. In addition, applicants must be eligible for licensure in British Columbia and with the Royal College of Physicians of Canada.
  • Additional fellowship training is desired but may be completed within the first few years of joining the department. Preference will be given to applicants with additional training and experience in perioperative medicine, transitional pain management, simulation/education, transplant anesthesia, trauma anesthesia and research. 
  • Recent clinical experience in a tertiary or quaternary care adult hospital is desired.
  • The ideal candidate will bring additional academic qualifications and a passion for research, quality improvement and education. Successful applicants will demonstrate a pursuit for clinical excellence and potential for non-clinical contributions, with a shared goal of collegiality, fairness and transparency.

    Diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to our goals of creating a great place to work and delivering exceptional care. We acknowledge and accommodate unique differences and ensure special measures are in place so that all prospective and current employees are given an opportunity to succeed. We value collegiality and collaboration, diversity, equity and a healthy work-life balance. We are able to offer a competitive salary and flexible work profiles.
