    Associate Dean, Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME)

    An exceptional opportunity to play a key role in fulfilling the Northern Ontario School of Medicine’s vision of Innovative Education and Research for a Healthier North.

    Since its official opening in 2005, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) has developed and delivered a distinctive, world-recognized model of distributed, community-engaged and socially accountable medical education and research. NOSM serves as the Faculty of Medicine of both Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and Laurentian University in Sudbury, with teaching and research sites across Northern Ontario – making the entire region its campus.

    This is a unique career environment for a physician with senior academic administration experience and a deep understanding of social accountability who is looking to make a difference in preparing the medical professionals of tomorrow.

    The Associate Dean of Postgraduate Medical Education is a member of the NOSM Executive Group, together with the Dean, the Chief Operating Officer (COO), the Vice Dean Academic, and the other Associate Deans, and is jointly accountable for the achievement of academic and non-academic objectives of NOSM. The Associate Dean is also a member of the School’s Strategic Academic Leadership Team.

    Reporting to the Vice Dean Academic, this medical education leader oversees and provides strategic direction for all Postgraduate Medical Education activities and programs. This includes program development and evaluation, accreditation oversight, assessment of learners, curriculum design, administrative staff management, and budget development and management for nine residency programs and the Postgraduate Education Portfolio. The Associate Dean recruits, hires, mentors and manages approximately 100 Postgraduate stipendiary faculty leaders across Northern Ontario, supports Residency Program Directors in their roles, liaises with all other educational programs at NOSM to optimize use of resources, and provides leadership in securing funding for strategic postgraduate initiatives, including grants and government funds to further residency programs.

    As a learning-centred and progressive leader who understands funding models and governing fiscal responsibility, the Associate Dean will be familiar with adult education principles and program and curriculum design. An excellent relationship builder and with strong partnerships externally and internally, the Associate Dean will liaise with NOSM-affiliated Academic Health Sciences Centres and other Northern Ontario teaching sites, and advocate for NOSM’s postgraduate programs locally, provincially and nationally. Keeping abreast of educational and accreditation initiatives that may impact the postgraduate environment, the Associate Dean will oversee and ensure a continuous quality improvement (CQI) approach to accreditation in all residency programs.

    A successful candidate for this role is a practicing physician with significant leadership experience in medical education in a Canadian university setting, and qualifications for a faculty appointment in the Clinical Sciences Division at NOSM. Candidates should have a proven track record in developing, managing and implementing medical school curriculum in an accredited medical school at the postgraduate level, ideally in a distributed, community-based environment. Candidates will also have knowledge of Francophone and Indigenous cultures.

    To be considered for this senior academic leadership role, please forward your resume to Phelpsgroup by April 13, 2018, to

    401 Bay Street, Suite 1400, Toronto, ON M5H 2Y4
