HealthRIGHT 360 is currently looking to fill a Medical Assistant opening at its Medication-Assisted Treatment Program in San Mateo, CA. The ideal candidate has 2 years of direct patient care experience as a medical assistant working in an ambulatory care setting with populations of varying lifestyles, ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds and economic status and histories of homelessness, incarceration and addiction.

Below you will find a more detailed description of some of the duties and requirements for this position.
The San Mateo Medication Assisted Treatment Program opened in 2016 and was created to fill the gap for substance use treatment within San Mateo County. We are warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental. Our patients struggle with addiction and come from varying backgrounds including homelessness and previous incarceration.
The clinic staff collaborates with the county and their Integrated Medicated Assisted Treatment team to provide fully integrated medical and behavioral support to patients with substance use disorders. We also work with other HealthRight360 programs and outside agencies in a collaborative cross functional model to help people make meaningful changes in their lives. We also provide primary care to our patients who have struggled in more mainstream primary care settings- addressing acute, chronic and preventive care needs.
We are looking for an intelligent, dynamic individual to join our team. The ideal candidate understands that offering patients a professional setting where they are treated with dignity, respect and compassion isn’t just an ideal; it is the way and reason that we run our organization.
