Head of Pharmacy at Cerebral Care

Title: Head of Pharmacy

  • Location: United States

Our Company:

Today, 1 in 3 Americans say they suffer from mental health problems like anxiety, depression, or insomnia. Despite this mental health epidemic, seeing a psychiatrist can take up to 3 months and cost as much as $500.

Shocked? Us too. That’s why we started Cerebral, a telemedicine-first mental health startup. We are breaking down the barriers to access mental healthcare so that anybody can get the care they need immediately. We provide tens of thousands of individuals across the nation with medication management, therapy, and counseling services. We launched publicly in January 2020 and are growing at over 40% month-over-month, and need your help.

The Role:

This role will lead the launch of and all ongoing components of Cerebral’s pharmacy operations. The Head of Pharmacy will be responsible for standing up our in-house pharmacy operation, driving process improvements across accuracy, productivity, and costs, and developing the long-term strategy.
