Acclaim Physician Group’s Department of Family Medicine, and JPS Health Network is seeking experienced physician leaders to join our team in the role of Medical Director. We are looking for providers who thrive in leading a team of primary care and mid-level providers, in a patient-centered medical home setting. Management experience combined with clinical expertise, and a passion for helping patients are a must.

Medical Directors provide direct patient care in the clinics, in addition to their administrative duties. In fact, 80% of the Medical Director’s role with be clinical in nature – providing compassionate care to a panel of patients.

They are expected to be leaders with a commitment and ability to drive organizational initiatives and lean processes. You must be able to coach performance in physicians and mid-level’s, and develop effective actions plans for achieving metrics.

JPS is also home to the largest Family Medicine Residency program in the country. Many of the residents rotate through the Family Health Center and the Stop 6 Clinic. We also have medical students from UNT and UTSW pre-cepting in these clinics. Although the Medical Director is not always directly responsible for supervising or scheduling the resident’s, you must be comfortable with their presence, and enjoy working with them.

We currently have openings in the following Community Health Centers:

Gertrude Tarpley - Watauga, TX

Viola Pitts Family Health Center – West Fort Worth
