Clinician Engagement

Many opportunities exist for clinical care providers from across the province to become engaged in our work. We have about 1,600 clinician opportunities across Ontario Health (Cancer Care Ontario). Many of these positions are volunteer committee members and other advisors related to our work in the cancer system. Opportunities also exist for paid regional leads, provincial leads and case reviewers.

Opportunities to Get Involved

All opportunities for clinicians to be involved with us are posted on the Ontario Health Clinician Engagement Opportunities page.
