Janian Medical Care, P.C., seeks full-time Primary Care Provider to start February/March 2021.
For over 30 years, Janian has been a leader in developing and implementing person-centered, community-based care for New Yorkers with lived experience of homelessness. We offer mission-driven clinicians a supportive, flexible, antiracist workplace that encourages clinical autonomy, meaningful work, and social justice. We continuously strive to create a practice that nurtures therapeutic relationships, supports evidence-based care, and grapples with the social and economic forces that lead to inequities and disparities in service and outcomes. We empower people to take control of their health and care. Physicians and nurse practitioners enjoy expert supervision and protected professional development and educational time including a Grand Rounds series granting CME credits. We offer a competitive salary commensurate with experience and excellent benefits. Janian Medical Care values workplace diversity and is committed to being an equal opportunity employer.
Janian’s primary care program, started in 2012, continues to expand rapidly. Janian providers work in a variety of settings including supportive housing, shelters, safe havens, drop-in centers, and with street outreach teams. In July 2016, Janian launched The Street Medicine Team in Manhattan to provide primary care services to people experiencing street homelessness who are unable to access healthcare in more traditional settings. The initiative was quickly expanded to a second team serving similar clients in Brooklyn and Queens. In July of 2020, DHS announced it would again be expanding the initiative to address further need for such services. The Street Medicine Team works with people for as long as is necessary with a focus on quality of care provided over quantity of clients served. Each team consists of 1 NP/MD, 1 RN, and 1 MA/van coordinator. The teams work closely with outreach teams who identify and refer medically vulnerable clients.
We are seeking dynamic, collaborative clinicians who are dedicated to providing primary care and to help us shape services for some of New York City’s most complex and vulnerable patients. We believe this is an excellent opportunity for primary care providers interested in person-centered, community-based care in a supportive, learning organization.
