It provides a broad range of specialized women's health services that address the health needs of women of all ages and backgrounds. BC Women's is one of the largest maternity facilities in Canada, with over 7,000 births a year, and is both the major primary and secondary maternity services provider in the Lower Mainland and the cornerstone of the provincial tertiary care system.

As an academic health Centre BCW's mandate includes providing strong leadership in research and the education and professional development of medical professionals in areas related to the health of the populations we serve.

The Breast Health Program, focuses exclusively on breast imaging and procedures. We perform screening mammography, diagnostic mammography including tomosynthesis and breast ultrasound. Contrast enhanced mammography will soon be added to our diagnostic services. We currently perform stereotactic, tomosynthesis and ultrasound biopsies. The program aims to be the first site in British Columbia to offer contrast enhanced biopsy. We are actively developing our breast MRI program and aim to start in the summer of 2024 with MRI guided biopsy capability. Our goal is to complete mammography and ultrasound at the first diagnostic visit, allowing women to leave the department knowing the next step in their breast care journey.

Reporting to the Medical Lead, Breast Health Program, this role will assume clinical responsibility, participate in resident education as well as the opportunity for research in Breast Health at BC Women's Hospital.

PHSA is seeking to create a diverse workforce and to establish an inclusive and culturally safe environment.

Reconciliation is an ongoing process and a shared responsibility for all of us. The BC Government unanimous passing of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act was a significant step forward in this journey-one that all health authorities are expected to support as we work in cooperation with Indigenous Peoples to establish a clear and sustainable path to meaningful and lasting reconciliation. True reconciliation will take time and ongoing commitment to work with Indigenous Peoples as we move toward self-determination.
