Collaborating Physician (MD/DO)

Clinicians /
Part Time /
Do you want to improve the lives of patients with opioid use disorder (OUD)? Join Ophelia and help improve patient access to evidence-based, high-quality treatment they deserve, with medication for OUD (MOUD).

When the x-waiver was still a requirement, fewer than 5% of eligible clinicians had one, and only 50% of waivered clinicians prescribed buprenorphine at all. While x-waivers are no longer required, there is still an undeniable gap in providing MOUD to patients.

Ophelia exists to change that. We're looking for providers who are patient-centered, non-judgmental, and want to offer patients the treatment they need to stay well. 

Ophelia is a healthcare startup that helps individuals with OUD improve their health and quality of life. We make medical best practices for OUD discreet, convenient, and affordable by providing FDA-approved medication, support, and therapy through a telehealth platform. Our mission is to help patients manage their OUD by using evidence-based treatment, technology, and a commitment to patient privacy and choice. 

We are a team of clinicians, scientists, startup veterans, and White House advisors, backed by leading technology and healthcare investors working to re-imagine and re-build OUD treatment in America. We've been successfully operating in 14 states for almost four years and we're excited to continue our growth.

Our clinical team consists of primarily mid-level (PA/NP) providers, and as we continue to expand care will need the support of additional Collaborating Physicians to join the team. 

The primary responsibility of the Part-time Physician is an administrative role as a Collaborating Physician for our midlevel providers (PAs/NPs) across all our practicing states. 

Each of our clinicians is managed by an internal Clinical Management team to ensure quality care, documentation review, and best practices are being followed according to our policies and protocols. Collaborating Physicians will be able to work closely with Clinical Management team on an as needed basis, join Clinical Team meetings, Grand Rounds, and smaller clinician Pod meetings to stay connected to the clinical work being conducted at Ophelia. 

On a quarterly basis the Collaborating Physician will be responsible for signing off on required documentation / chart reviews that will initially be conducted by our Clinical Management team with notes regarding any inadequacies. Our goal is to ensure the administrative role of the Collaborating Physician is fully supported by the Clinical Management team.
