Medical Director, Virtual Care - NYC

    • New York, NY

Hi, we're Oscar Medical Group. We’re hiring a Medical Director, Virtual Care to join our team working remotely in New York City.

Healthcare is broken. Patients experience a system that is fragmented, inaccessible, and impossibly complicated. We want to change that starting with primary care. We also believe medicine is a team sport and great primary care means connecting patients to a broader community of healthcare professionals and resources that are designed to address each patient’s healthcare needs. We’re starting with a ‘virtual first’ connection. 

About this role: 

We’re looking for an MD to oversee a Virtual Care Team and panel of members in New York City. This is the first market we’re launching our Virtual Primary Care offering in. You’ll keep a set patient schedule, treating patients, managing clinical escalations, and engaging in new products we’re rolling out for the program. 

As we build the program, you’ll advocate for specific needs for your Care Team, and areas for improvement for our Virtual Primary Care offering. You’ll determine when in-person interactions are most appropriate for members, and make referrals to those care settings. You’ll be our ears to the ground and eyes to the future of how we provide primary care.
