During his education and subsequent training, Dr. Rival studied under some of North America's preeminent leaders in facial plastic surgery, further solidifying his position as one of Toronto's top choices for aesthetic or functional improvements of the face. In addition to his private practice, Dr. Rival is on the teaching faculty at the University of Toronto. He holds staff positions at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto and Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket. He is also chief of the Division of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery at Southlake.

In addition to his double board certification, Dr. Rival is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in Otolaryngology, the Canadian Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and its American counterpart.
