Job Description

About Vera

Vera Whole Health is a national leader in advanced primary care. Our time-rich model emphasizes empathetic listening and behavior change – rather than profit – as the key to whole person health. We go beyond the symptoms to help people achieve optimum social, psychological, and physical well-being. We’re also the first provider in the United States to earn a Certificate of Validation from the Validation Institute for sound population health cost outcomes.

When you come to work at Vera, you become part of a company who is committed from the top down to changing healthcare for the better. Our culture is built on empathy, trust, challenge, innovation, and growth. Join our health revolution and work with a team of knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated medical professionals who are as passionate as you are about improving patient health.

About Team

As a care team member, you are able to do what you love more fully and effectively, accompanying patients on each step of their health journey. With health coaches embedded in your team, you’ll also be able to provide valuable guidance through each stage of behavior change so that patients become empowered in their health journeys.

About Role

As a Medical Assistant at Vera Whole Health, you provide support in delivering excellent patient service, clinical care, and front office duties. A team player, you help to ensure that the care center runs efficiently by managing the flow of patient services, monitoring resources, and working collaboratively with providers. You are adaptable, able to navigate change and work through ambiguity in a fast-paced environment.

“Vera allows me the time to really connect with my patients and when trust is established, they are more willing to share information that will truly make a difference in their health.”.
