Job Description:

What is the future of medicine? Imagine working in the most advanced, cutting-edge space where technology, machine learning and clinical care meet. Imagine working on a mission to end the plague of food anaphylaxis. Imagine working to change the lives of children and young adults utilizing this technology to allow your clinical skills to be optimized to a level not thought of before.
The Southern California Food Allergy Institute has treated over 10,000 children and young adults who suffer from life threatening food anaphylaxis. Our organization has over thirty medical providers who are trained and deploy deep machine learning models on a daily basis to take our patients to a point of remission - a place called food freedom. Using this proprietary, advanced approach developed by our founder for over 15 years, our institute is on track to expand treatment to millions of patients across the US and the world.
The Tolerance Induction Program--- is an individualized treatment program designed to help children with food allergies achieve true "Food Freedom"- the ability to eat whatever they want, whenever they want, without fear of reaction. Thousands of patients travel from all over the world to receive this one of a kind treatment here in California.
