    • Irvine, CA

Hi, we're Oscar Medical Group. We’re hiring a Medical Director for Virtual Care to join our team in Orange County, CA.

Healthcare is broken. Patients experience a system that is fragmented, inaccessible, and impossibly complicated. We want to change that starting with primary care that is accessible, high quality, and personal.
