Medical Director



Posted on Monday, December 11, 2023

Join us as we re-imagine and rebuild the clinical research model and its integration into the clinical care model: it’s time for a new PARADIGM in healthcare and drug development.

We envision a world where clinical trials become an accessible care option for all patients, fully integrated into the standard clinical care continuum, at scale. We are building a tech-enabled ecosystem to tackle inefficiencies in the current clinical research model. In today’s model, the vast majority of patients in the community are never offered access to clinical trial participation as a care option for their disease. Patients with privileged social and economic backgrounds have disproportional access to clinical trials, perpetuating existing systemic inequities in healthcare.

Our goal, via the deployment of our end-to-end technology platform embedded in the provider workflow, is to minimize barriers to clinical trial access and create efficiency at scale across the community healthcare ecosystem. In accomplishing this, patients will be given equitable access to clinical trials as a standard care option, regardless of their race, gender, socioeconomic status or insurance coverage, which will accelerate trials for sponsors and alleviate the labor burden for providers.

You are someone who is proud of your diverse background, clinical expertise, and perspectives. You’re ready to use your experience to help us reimagine the clinical research model and its integration into the overall patient care delivery model. You will work with experts in the fields of healthcare, clinical trial operations, product development, software engineering & data science, and drug development.

Join us and bring your expertise, passion, creativity, and drive as we work together to increase access for all patients, no matter the location, creating an impactful difference in healthcare globally.

As Medical Director at Paradigm, you will join our clinical operations team to provide medical support and insight. You will work closely with research professionals to take a data-driven approach to the analysis and implementation of clinical research protocols at scale. The intersection of analytics and healthcare is comfortable to you, as you strategically develop a research portfolio for health systems, providers, and research sponsors.

You will have a hand in shaping and overseeing the company's medical strategy, clinical development, and product development as it relates to clinical trial conduct and patient data access. We are looking for a visionary medical leader who is focused on the use of technology solutions to optimize access to the best possible care for all patients, inclusive of clinical trials. This unique medical director will leverage not only medical expertise and a deep understanding of care delivery and clinical drug development but also the support of medical input relative to technical product development.

An understanding of the use of data science and patient-level data analytics as part of the decision support matrix for care will be valuable. Leveraging your medical expertise, industry knowledge, and clinical trial experience you will drive innovation and contribute to the success of Paradigm. This role will also be involved in discussions with study sponsors and clinical research organizations. This role requires an understanding of the clinical trial ecosystem, healthcare system dynamics and workflows, regulatory requirements, and the ability to collaborate with cross-functional teams.
