Benign Hematology Program

Division of Hematology, Department of Medicine,  

The Ottawa Hospital and the Faculty of Medicine, University of Ottawa  


The Division of Hematology (Ottawa Blood Disease Centre) at The Ottawa Hospital is experiencing significant clinical and academic growth.  We are seeking a hematologist specializing in Benign Hematology to join in our expansion and to lead in clinical care, education and research as a full-time academic faculty member.  The Ottawa Blood Disease Centre is a large group of 41 faculty that work within a group practice plan model within the University of Ottawa and The Ottawa Hospital academic centre. The Division has three well-defined and successful clinical and research programs: Malignant Hematology, Thrombosis and Benign Hematology.


The benign hematology group with 11 faculty members includes dedicated programs in Apheresis, Hemostasis, Hemoglobinopathy, Transfusion Medicine, and General Hematology. The Ottawa Hospital has a large and well-supported Sickle cell and Hemoglobinopathy Program where physicians participate in a shared clinic structure supported by nursing, social work and dedicated clerical support. Our Apheresis Program oversees inpatient and outpatient apheresis services for hematological and non-hematological indications and has similar support staff and a dedicated treatment unit. Training opportunities may be available for early career hematologists or those considering expanding their scope of practice in these areas.


While applicants with a clinical focus in any part of benign or general hematology are invited to apply, we are especially seeking a hematologist interested in Sickle Cell Disease, Hemoglobinopathies and Apheresis Programs. The position available is for a full-time academic appointment within the Department of Medicine and The Ottawa Hospital. The successful candidate will be supported and mentored to pursue a mutually agreed area of clinical research or quality improvement that fits their interests.

Academically, the division of hematology supports undergraduate and postgraduate training, including subspecialty fellowship trainees in all three of our programs. The Division of Hematology and the University of Ottawa Department of Medicine support research through a Clinical Research Office, and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute houses experts in broad areas of clinical epidemiology, statistical support, transfusion medicine research, patient decision-making, and knowledge translation. The Department of Medicine supports clinical academic work through a competitive Academic Incentive Program.

The City of Ottawa provides a thriving multicultural and bilingual environment. Ottawa boasts numerous cultural activities as well as readily accessible sporting and natural resources, making it an ideal family and healthy living environment.
