Who we are

HealthTap understands why most doctors became doctors in the first place — to help people live their healthiest lives. Our mission is to provide real-time access to high-quality, affordable, accessible health information and health care for everyone. 

We have built the world's best digital health platform that enables and empowers doctors to provide the best care possible, and supports their continued advancement in medical knowledge, science, and technology. 

All doctors who give one-on-one virtual healthcare in the HealthTap Medical Group are also members of the HealthTap Doctor Network. If you haven’t yet joined this network of more than 90,000 doctors across 147 specialties who volunteer to share their knowledge with millions of HealthTap members and other doctors, please consider joining the HealthTap Doctor network so you can experience for yourself what we’re all about.

Who we're looking for

If you are a compassionate, friendly, U.S.-licensed doctor who is experienced in primary care and board certified in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, or Emergency Medicine, please apply today for a full-time or part-time contractor position in our new virtual primary care clinic. We also anticipate opening Pediatric and Women's Health services in the future, so if you are board certified in Pediatrics or Obstetrics and Gynecology, please apply now so we can follow up with you for future opportunities. 

If you would like to work in our virtual clinic, you should be excited to use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to provide virtual primary care to patients.
