Classified Details

We are seeking team–oriented and professional Anesthesiologists to be part of our dynamic and expanding department. The Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region’s Anesthesiology Department includes 28 specialist Anesthesiologists with diverse interests.


We provide anesthesiology service for the full range of surgical practice except transplant surgery. We also provide care for approximately 4000 obstetric patients annually, and boast an aggressive cardiac surgical program, providing opportunity for all department members with recent cardiac anesthesia and TEE experience, to participate in the program.


We provide care at two publicly funded hospitals (Regina General Hospital and Pasqua Hospital), two private surgical centres, and an off-site Preop Assessment Centre.


Our goal is to expand to operate 20 surgical theatres. However, we are not yet at this capacity, running between 14 and 18 theatres daily. Theatres are managed to allow for reduced capacity during summer and holiday periods, allowing physicians and staff greater vacation opportunities. Holiday time is negotiable and most holiday requests can be accommodated, when tendered early.


Call requirements are 1:5 to 1:6 depending on vacation requests. Most department members take the day off after call. Some take the day off before an evening of Call. Call is reimbursed as a stipend from the Specialist Emergency Coverage Program and Fee-for-Service billing is in addition to the stipend.


The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region is dedicated to learning and is a partner in the growing educational needs of medical students and residents from the College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan.


To help assist in relocation, significant incentive packages are available from the Saskatchewan Medical Association and the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region.
