Positions available include:

  • Administrators
  • Behavioral health specialists
  • Center administrators
  • Clinical pharmacists
  • Community engagement representatives
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Primary care physicians
  • Social workers

As with its existing centers, each new Partners in Primary Care center in Houston will be staffed by board-certified physicians and care teams who have been specially trained to treat the senior population.

  • Referral specialists who help schedule specialists visits and assist with record transfers.

    churches, and community organizations to support the social and well-being needs of
    patients.
