Job Description

Durham College is seeking an experienced and motivated professional who shares our commitment to quality and student success. The School of Science and Engineering Technology requires a part-time professor to teach HCTM 22004 – Canadian Health Care System.

This course introduces students to the Canadian health care system. Students will learn how Canada’s health care system began and evolved, how it is organized and administered, how it compares to systems in other countries and about contemporary health policy problems and responses.

The course begins with an overview of the historical development of Canada’s health care system, including the Canada Health Act (1984) and the federal and provincial/territorial roles in health care delivery and financing. Early in the course, students will compare Canada’s system to those in other countries on the basis of coverage, public and private financing, cost and performance. After having laid the foundation for informed policy analysis, students will explore today’s most pressing policy problems, including those related to cost and sustainability, quality and patient safety, clinical effectiveness and accessibility. Students will also review the approval process for new health technologies in Canada.


Part-time recruitment is ongoing and is dependent on when courses are being taught and the need for faculty to teach.    Part-time faculty teach up to 6 hours per week with varied schedules Monday through Thursday between 8:00 am and 9:00 pm and Fridays between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.
