Functional Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant

Adapt Clinic is a new patient care platform created by globally-renowned clinician and thought leader Chris Kresser, M.S. L.Ac. Launching in June of 2020, Adapt Clinic will offer a new model of care integrating Functional Medicine, nutrition, and health coaching to provide patients with an exceptional level of service and support. 

Adapt Clinic will utilize a subscription model which includes access to nutritionists and health coaches, text- and app-based support, a monthly webinar with Chris, a monthly Q&A with the Adapt Clinic staff, guided classes and challenges (e.g. a class on gut health, a 30-day sleep challenge, etc.), a discount on supplements and labs, and other benefits. 

Care will be delivered primarily via a telemedicine video platform, although Adapt Clinic will launch with a small footprint in CA and may expand with satellite offices distributed throughout the U.S. over time.

  • Is interested in playing a teaching role in the ADAPT Practitioner Training Program 

Position, compensation, and benefits:
You will start as a 1099 independent contractor and be paid on an hourly basis, but transition to a salaried, full-time W2 employee status as the clinic grows. 

Hourly and full-time salary TBD based on background and experience.
