Canadian Society of Cardiac Surgeons


The CSCS Mission is to promote and represent the specialty of cardiac surgery including but not exclusive to research, education, and sound clinical practice.

The CSCS strives to be responsive to its members’ needs. In addition to the educational activities it sponsors and develops, it has partnered to assess workforce issues hoping to project surgeon shortages in the future to help plan for our specialty’s growth. We are playing a role in the development of training programs to help the field adapt to new technologies and embrace new techniques.



Trillium Health Partners (THP) is the largest community based academic health network in Ontario, serving over one million residents in the communities of Mississauga, Peel Region and West Toronto. The hospital encompasses three main sites – Credit Valley Hospital (CVH), Mississauga Hospital (MH), and Queensway Health Centre (QHC) – offering a full range of acute care hospital services, as well as a variety of community-based specialized programs including the Peel Regional Cancer Centre.

We currently have a position available for a Cardiac Surgeon to join a long standing cooperative practice.  The program is a full-service cardiac surgical center of high volume.  It is anticipated that the successful candidate’s scope of practice may include new structural heart technologies like TAVR and mitraclip and the preferred candidate should have experience with these. An interest or experience with off pump coronary bypass, total arterial grafting strategies and lesser access valve procedures would be considered an asset.

The successful candidate will also promote and exemplify excellence in professional practice and conduct and must be licensed in good standing in Ontario or eligible for a license to practice in Ontario, Canada. The candidate is expected to be involved in population based outcome studies and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Database (STS).

The organization is an affiliated academic teaching center with the University of Toronto. The successful candidate will be eligible for appointment with the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto.  Excellent interpersonal skills and a commitment to team based and inter-professional care are essential.

The position represents an opportunity to join a group of dedicated healthcare professionals in a progressive organization. The position is currently available to start immediately but could start by March 2018.

Interested candidates are requested to reply with a covering letter and curriculum vitae, by February 5, 2018 to:

Dr. Manish Maingi and Dr. Charles Cutrara
