You finally made it to the start of your physician career. Congratulations! We know that as a medical resident you have worked incredibly hard to complete the education and training required to start your residency, fellowship or new practice opportunity. There’s never been a better, more rewarding time to be in the medical field because of the nation’s growing shortage of qualified physicians. The world is at your fingertips!

As you weigh the abundant opportunities at your doorstep, you likely have questions about the recruitment process in general, as well as working with physician recruitment firms. We have the answers! More and more new physicians are turning to professional recruitment firms and recruiters to uncover job opportunities as they enter the medical workforce. So, as a trusted physician recruitment partner to thousands of healthcare organizations for more than 30 years, we want you to understand the advantages of working with our firm.

With long-standing partnerships with some of the country’s leading, most premier healthcare organizations, we have connections – giving you maximum exposure to sought-after positions across the nation. We place more than 3,000 candidates through search engagements each year by championing your skills and job fit requirements to hiring managers, and ultimately moving your application to the top of the pile.

Our recruitment consultants are among the most tenured and knowledgeable in the industry, having deep insights into current and future job market dynamics, compensation and benefits trends, communities and lifestyle information. Cross Country Search visits every client to rigorously vet the practice opportunity, culture and community.

We employ a personalized approach to the job search process, from working within your timeline to keeping the needs and wants of your family and significant others in mind. As your dedicated career advocate, our recruiters will guide you through every step of the job search process – from interview preparation to salary negotiation.

Our recruitment consultants have access to jobs that you, as a job seeker, often can’t see yet. Through their many years of deep relationships with clients, they are often the first to hear about job openings that may be a best fit for you and your career – regardless of your experience level, specialty, location preferences or goals. Therefore, we can quickly get you in contact with the newest and most exciting clients and hiring decision-makers.

Many candidates who are new to the physician recruitment process think we receive a percentage of their salary or that our costs take away from any sign-on bonuses or fringe benefits – that is false. We only receive fees from the client that are outside the candidates’ salary or bonus. Therefore, there are no costs for you as a candidate to receive valuable career insight and support in landing your next great opportunity.

  1. Exposure, exposure, exposure.
  2. Expert recruitment expertise.
