Who is TELUS Health - MyCare? As part of the Clinical Operations team, you’ll be working alongside leaders in technology, physicians, medical experts, and a fun, hard-working group of HealthTech enthusiasts who are responsible for the roll out and operations behind TELUS Health MyCare.

You’ll get to learn the ins-and-outs of our technology and gain extensive knowledge of the Canadian healthcare system.

Experience working with some form of CRM and EMR software and completing highly administrative tasks like data entry is valuable; you’ll be responsible for navigating and updating upwards of 100 patient records per day.

Above all, the ability to demonstrate previous experience in providing exceptional customer service is paramount. Can you stay calm under pressure? We want to hear about it!
