President & CEO – The Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC)

The Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) is seeking an exceptional leader, advocate, and representative to champion its mission of excellence in education, research, and social accountability for the health of all Canadians.

Founded in 1943 and representing Canada’s faculties of medicine, AFMC is the voice of academic medicine in this country. As CEO, working closely with the Board, you will deliver on a range of strategies and initiatives that support AFMC’s mission to further enhance excellence in education, research, and social accountability. In doing so, you will help position AFMC as a trusted and highly regarded voice and partner on matters related to education, research, and social accountability across a broad array of internal and external partners and stakeholders. You will set the direction and tone for a culture that values collaboration, respect, engagement, innovation, and integrity. AFMC’s dedicated team of professionals will look to you for mentorship, inspiration, and guidance as AFMC’s members navigate an increasingly complex and demanding post-pandemic landscape in academic medicine.

As the ideal candidate, you are a respected partner, skilled leader, and compelling advocate. Your academic preparation (i.e., MD, PhD, MPA, MHA, MBA, etc.) and career have equipped you with valuable knowledge, experiences, and opportunities to engage with and be a respected leader among healthcare and academic medicine partners and stakeholders across Canada. You are an exceptional communicator and spokesperson, who skillfully engages with audiences large and small, in both official languages. Your knowledge of healthcare and academic medicine, research or education, is enviable as are your many successes partnering with and advocating to governments, provincially or federally, and Canada’s health system stakeholders. As a leader, you personify humility, empathy, and integrity. You are considered a resourceful, innovative, and enterprising administrator who will gain the trust and confidence of staff and Board as AFMC continues along a path of growth and impact.
