Job Description

Our Mission

Calibrate’s mission is to change the way the world treats weight. 

Our Method

Calibrate is on a mission to change the way the world treats weight. We are the modern, medical approach to metabolic health. Calibrate members are paired with a doctor and a coach, who support them during their customized year-long program to lose 10% of their body weight and reset their metabolic system. We personalize treatment with medications and behavior coaching, using content and connected devices to help change the way members eat, exercise, sleep, and manage their emotional health.

About The Role

A modern approach to weight health requires modern practices, and that means radically remodeling how intensive lifestyle intervention programs operate and scale. As part of our clinical care team, you’ll deliver several critical components of the Calibrate program: face-to-face video patient assessments, confirmation of clinical appropriateness for clinical care pathways, introduction to our method, and setting program plans with members. 

In addition to providing exceptional patient care, your feedback on how we can continue to improve our program to help patients achieve–and maintain–their weight-loss goals will help shape and improve the program.

Calibrate is backed by Redesign Health and Forerunner Ventures. Our founding team helped build Capsule, Oscar, One Medical, Blink Health, Cityblock Health, and more.

Responsibilities:

  • Consistently provide a world-class level of clinical care and patient experience
  • Review patient intake and provide the initial patient interaction, including the discussion of the scientific principles of obesity and the prescription of appropriate weight loss therapy based on Calibrate clinical protocols
  • Review and manage daily tasks, patient callbacks, and lab results during shifts; oversee patient progress; engage with coaches to coordinate care for patients; and review progress in regularly scheduled check-ins
  • Utilize and support a detailed clinical treatment paradigm, developed and updated by the Calibrate team and specialized to support obese patients achieve weight-loss goals

Qualifications:

  • BC/BE MD - family medicine, internal medicine (with or without subspecialization), or emergency med with primary care experience; other BC/BE physicians with specific obesity medicine experience are also welcome to apply

  • Active, unrestricted license in CA required; license in at least 1 other Calibrate state (PA, NY, TX, GA, NC, VA, CT, IL, WA, TN, MO, OH, NJ, MN, KY) strongly preferred

Ideal Qualities:

  • A clinical style that will work well with our belief that healthy, long-term, sustainable weight-loss is impossible to achieve without dedicated medical and coaching support
