This is a tremendous practice with a long established history and reputation as a national leader in ambulatory multispecialty practice, population health management, and value-based care.
We are one of a handful of physician practices in this nation who are fully invested in value-based care as the ideal reimbursement model for an independent (non-hospital owned) ambulatory practice grounded on an outstanding primary care foundation. We believe that prevention is the ultimate form of treatment, therefore, through value-based reimbursement, we are rewarded when we prevent avoidable hospitalizations or catch a cancer when it is easily treatable.
Anne Dixon, MD
Interim Chief Medical Officer
All of us, from our family medicine physicians to our orthopedic surgeons to our radiologists, share a common culture that takes pride in holding each other accountable to take the time and effort to provide proactive preventive care whenever possible. Furthermore, we have invested in a world-class clinical informatics and data infrastructure that helps us apply advanced predictive analytics to identify which of our patients are most in need of our help – and to identify them well before they experience any symptoms.
However, if I were to highlight one thing, it would be the strength of our clinician community. Our dedication to our community was on full display during the height of our recent COVID-19 surge here in Boston. Sixty-one Atrius Health physicians and nurses bravely volunteered to staff the Boston Hope COVID Field Hospital at the Boston Convention Center. We were there when the very first patient was admitted and stayed until the very last patient was discharged. Atrius Health had more clinicians there than any other practice in the city.
Our vision is to help transform care to improve lives. Come join our amazing community!
We invite you to join our team of innovative, talented physicians at Atrius Health. We believe you’ll find that no other practice in the Boston area is as well-suited to deliver an enhanced model of care to patients.
Please fill out this brief form below. If you are interested in more than one primary care position, no need to apply to multiple positions as the physician recruiter will discuss your preferred geography when you connect.
Upon submission of your credentials, an Atrius Health Physician Recruiter will review your information and contact you if your experience matches our open search. Unfortunately we are unable to candidates who do not have the unrestricted ability to work in the United States.
Meet Our Recruitment Team
Our recruitment professionals are knowledgeable about the requirements of the positions currently available and are here to guide you through every step of the hiring process. Navigating the transition to a new place of employment is not easy, especially if you are new to Massachusetts or newly-trained. Our dedicated team of seasoned, well-respected individuals will assist you in any way possible. Our physician recruitment staff are resources for you during the interview process, the pre-employment process and even after you join Atrius Health.
Preparing for Employment
Recruitment Process Overview
The staff within the Department of Physician and Medical Staff Recruitment will be your primary contact for exploring practice opportunities at Atrius Health. Our goal is to respond to you as soon as possible. Our recruiters will reach out to you to schedule a mutually convenient time to talk or meet in person to learn more about your clinical interests, career goals and preferred geography. At this time, we can learn of your desire to work full- or part-time and special interests like teaching or quality improvement, as well as provide an overview of the position and Atrius Health. We will follow up and send you documents that will further describe our organization and the department and position to which you are applying.
The Interview Process
Your CV will be sent confidentially to the hiring chief of the department. We will arrange a mutually convenient time for you to meet the leadership and staff of the practice or specialty. Returning for an in-depth interview with other clinicians and staff would be the next step. If you are coming to interview from out-of-state, we will try to complete your visit in one day if possible. Again, your physician recruiter will be with you during your interview day and will be available to answer any questions you may have.
Ideally, we would like to contact three (3) references before making a verbal offer; however, depending on your personal circumstances, we can extend a verbal offer and then follow-up with your current supervisor and other references.
A formal, written offer can generally only occur after contacting your current supervisor, but like many processes, there are exceptions that can be made. Our recruiters will work with you to find the best approach, ensuring you are comfortable each step of the way.
Please know the following:
Your recruiter will forward to you a Reference Authorization and Release form. As the process evolves, you will need to complete, sign and return this form in order for us to conduct reference checks. One of the contacts on this form must be a current supervisor. All contacts must be from a physician. We respect your confidentiality, so we will not contact any references unless this form is signed, completed and returned to us.
Additionally, you will need to provide us with three written letters of reference. All letters should be from those names listed on the Reference Authorization and Release form.
Written references should be:
- Addressed “To whom it may concern”
- On Letterhead
Letters can be scanned and e-mailed to your physician recruiter or alternatively, faxed to (617) 559-8255.
The credentialing process must be completed prior to commencement of your employment. Accordingly, we will need the following materials:
- Most recent copy of Board Certificate
- Most recent non-expired DEA Certificate
- Most recent non-expired Massachusetts Controlled Substances Registration (MCSR)
- Most recent non-expired Massachusetts Medical License
- Massachusetts License Application/Renewal
- CV in month/year format
- Copy of MD Degree
- Three letters of reference
- BLS (or equivalent) Certification
- 10-year malpractice history
Additionally, we will send you a pre-filled credentialing packet, which will be comprised of the following documents:
- Integrated Massachusetts Application for Initial Credentialing
- Application for malpractice insurance coverage through CRICO
- W-9 Form
- Application for hospital privileges (if applicable)
- BCBS Indemnity forms
- Cigna Attestation form
- Medicare Application or linking form
- MassHealth Application or linking form
There are many steps involved in the credentialing process. These steps are particularly lengthy for out-of-state and newly-trained physicians. Your Atrius Health physician recruiter and our Provider Enrollment staff are here to guide you through the process.
Below is a diagram of the sequential process to become fully licensed and credentialed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We recommend that you closely monitor each step of the process. Our staff is here to help you!
