Sometimes the most important factor in a physician job search is speed. You want to find the best physician job you can, but maybe your spouse's company has transferred him or her to another state, and you only have a matter of weeks to find a new job before it's time to move.
A physician recruitment firm can be a valuable tool when time is an issue. Staff physician recruiters can help you identify jobs in your specialty in the location where you are moving. And a physician placement agency that understands your specialty will listen to your preferences for the other elements that make a job a good fit: type of practice, hours, type of work, and salary.
Whether you have enjoyed a fulfilling practice in general medicine or you are an expert in a specialized niche, such as pediatric oncology, a physician recruiter can help you find the best job for you in your new location. You can spend more time packing and house-hunting, and less time sifting through job listings and trying to guess which ones would be the most similar to your current job.
