Physician Careers: get the autonomy and freedom you want with the support and resources you need.

We're working to transform health care and bring more healthy days to our members. And we want physicians who share that passion to lead our dedicated clinical teams.

As a medical director, you’ll help manage our programs to ensure quality of care for members at an affordable cost. You’ll develop and oversee clinical programs, such as care and utilization management. And you’ll analyze data to search for ways to improve them. Your decisions may affect individuals or entire populations.

You’ll develop and mentor a team of clinical professionals to carry out this mission. In addition, you’ll serve as liaison with physicians and hospitals in our network. That’s even more important as we move toward joint ventures and value-based models of care and reimbursement.

We offer the vast data resources and tools that will help you and your team to personalize care. And you’ll be able to cut through red tape to meet members’ needs.

Professional support and a great career path

We support your needs, too. Our generous benefits include some unexpected ones, such as online classes in mindfulness and yoga. We offer discounts on gym memberships. You can even earn rewards for your healthy habits.

If you're looking for professional growth and work-life balance, you've found the right place. We offer chances for advancement, and we'll help pay for your license fees and continuing education.

Of course, every professional role is different and may have unique requirements. But, in general, we’re looking for:

  • 3-5 years’ experience in the health care delivery system, including clinical practice and the health care industry
  • Active and current state medical license (M.D. or D.O.) without encumbrances
  • Board certification in a recognized specialty, including post-graduate direct patient care in that specialty

For most roles, we also prefer that you have managed care experience.
