Operating across 50 states, Galileo offers high-touch, data-driven, multi-specialty, longitudinal care to diverse and complex patients—on the phone, in the home, and everywhere in between. Regional and national health plans, employers, and Fortune 500 organizations trust Galileo as the leading solution to improve population health. Founded by Dr. Tom X. Lee, the healthcare pioneer behind One Medical and Epocrates, Galileo is a team of leading innovators from healthcare, technology, and human-centered design. Our mission is to apply that talent and scientific thinking to transform society by solving our largest, toughest healthcare problems, while at the same time bringing patient and provider closer.


Galileo is looking for a primary care Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant with strong clinical experience in complex care, including prenatal and postpartum care and an interest in improving health outcomes for those who need it the most.

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Deliver primary care in a patient-centric and provider-centric model - in the home, in the clinic, and through virtual visits. The scope of care includes prenatal/postpartum care, preventive health services, chronic disease management, urgent care, and transition of care.
  • Collaborate, and partner across care team members including social work, behavioral health, virtual urgent care and triage, and clinical sub specialists
  • Present patients during complex care rounds and solicit interdisciplinary feedback in formulating effective care plans
  • Educate patients on their health conditions and develop care and treatment plans

Patient Advocacy

  • Advocate for seamless coordination of care among individuals involved in your patients' lives across the care continuum, within the home and within the community to ensure the best outcomes for patients.
  • Identify and help to address any financial, social, environmental or functional barriers to care or better health

Population Health

  • Take proactive ownership of population health outcomes - hospital/ED admissions/readmissions, quality metrics, and patient satisfaction
  • Drive ongoing improvements for our care model, optimizing outcomes while decreasing inefficiency
