Perhaps you have reached a point in your medical career where you have been working in one field for years, or maybe only weeks, and you decide that your passion lies in a different area. What is the best way to find a job in a different field of medicine than your current job?
A physician recruiting firm can be an excellent resource if you feel strongly about changing your career. For example, if you are a general surgeon and you have decided that you want to dedicate your career to treating women with breast cancer, a physician recruitment firm can help you identify opportunities for breast cancer care in your area (if you don't want to move) or elsewhere (if you do want to relocate).
Physician placement agencies can help you explore a new career by finding locum tenens opportunities. And a physician recruiter can continue to help you find additional locum work or a permanent position after you complete your initial locum in a new field.
