The faculty and support staff who work for the Department of Medicine are part of a cohesive team to build bridges that link expertise, learning, knowledge and hands-on practice to improve patient care locally, nationally, and internationally. We are a dedicated and energetic department with over 400 physicians and 170 support staff.
The support staff of Ottawa’s Department of Medicine are provided with opportunities for growth and development in their field. We offer a competitive compensation package and a friendly, positive working environment. Support staff are employees of the hiring physician(s) or Subspecialty division and The Ottawa Hospital is the paymaster of our employee. Although our employees have offices within The Ottawa Hospital, they are not employed by The Ottawa Hospital.
Ottawa’s Department of Medicine offers outstanding opportunities for current and future health care practitioners. The Department is responsible for the recruitment and hiring of our physicians as well as overseeing the appointment process in close to twenty subspecialty medical divisions. In these Divisions, physicians, researchers, educators, administrators and future health care professionals work in an open, inclusive, supportive and inspiring culture.
