Job Description

Psychiatrist (Telemedicine) - UpLift About UpLift

At UpLift, we believe mental health is just as important as physical health, and we're rethinking the mental healthcare model. UpLift is a multi-sided marketplace, applying technology to empower patients to find Therapists and Psychiatric providers that are covered by their insurance plan. Patients lack access to proper mental healthcare and while 1 in 5 Americans struggle with mental health issues, only 40% of this group received care in the last year. At the same time, providers are underutilized, and only 30% of Therapists accept insurance. UpLift acts as the bridge between patient, provider and insurer, empowering patients to find the best care for their needs at a price they can afford.

As a Psychiatrist at UpLift, you will work hand-in-hand with our network of licensed therapists to deliver world-class, evidence-based mental healthcare.
