Frequently Asked Questions

The competition for physician talent is fierce. How can you assist us in competing with other healthcare organizations?

At the beginning of a search engagement, we prepare a comprehensive profile for the job opportunity that begins with visiting your facility, meeting with your leadership team, and touring the community. This allows us to understand your organization's unique advantages and effectively promote them to candidates. This could include highlighting your organization's reputation, benefits, professional growth opportunities, work-life balance initiatives, or the attractions of the local area. By positioning your organization as a desirable workplace, we help you stand out to top physician talent.

How will our job opportunities be marketed to attract highly qualified candidates?

There's a reason we're known for achieving a faster time-to-fill. Our candidate sourcing process includes direct outreach to our large database of physicians, posting jobs to more than 10 job boards until the search is filled, sending targeted email campaigns to thousands of opted-in, engaged physicians, and extensive use of social media platforms, including Doximity. You'll find that our flexible, dynamic strategy allows us to tailor search parameters based on your specific needs, ensuring we identify and attract physicians who are not only qualified but are also a strong cultural fit.

How do you assess cultural fit between our organization and potential candidates to facilitate a successful match and long-term retention?

We start by thoroughly understanding your organization's culture, mission, and values, which are then incorporated into our candidate screening process. Our goal is to match your organization with physicians who not only meet the technical job requirements but also share your organization's vision, enhancing the opportunity for long-term retention.

How can Jackson Physician Search help us streamline our recruitment process and reduce time-to-fill for open physician positions?

The onsite profile visit establishes the foundation for a successful search. It provides the recruiter with a deep understanding of the role, culture, and community, which informs a customized recruitment strategy. Our digital candidate sourcing strategy quickly reaches both active and passive candidates through maximum exposure on multiple job boards, email campaigns, social media platforms, and targeted outreach through our opted-in physician database. When we identify candidates who are a strong fit and are interested in the role, we assist with interview preparedness and contract negotiation.

How does your fee structure work?

Our fee structure has no hidden or surprise fees throughout your search. We also never send costly, ineffective direct mail. We believe in a win-win business model where Jackson Physician Search only profits upon successful placement. We invite you to speak with us about the transparency of our fee structure, contract terms, and search process.

How does Jackson Physician Search stay updated on current trends in the healthcare industry that impact physician recruitment?

Does Jackson Physician Search place physicians into locum tenens assignments?
