8 Winter 2018 president's note DEAR PHYSICIAN, There's a little town in West Virginia that I call home. Hinton sits 10 miles off Interstate 64, nestled in the Alleghany mountains at the confluence of the New and Greenbrier rivers. It's home to just under 3,000 people and to the headquarters of Hinton is surrounded by priceless historic architecture and majestic natural beauty. It's a community that is working together to make a positive difference — a difference that you can feel the moment you arrive. I always think of Hinton when this, our annual Quality of Life issue, rolls around. That's because your job search, whether you're preparing to start your first practice or your next one, isn't just about where you'll practice. It's not just about finding a workplace with a favorable contract, an acceptable call schedule, or a partnership path. It's also about where you and your family will live. It's about finding a place you'll be happy to call home. makes it easy to find your first or next practice and learn about the community in which you'll live. Select your geographic preferences by region or by state, or tell us your target zip code. We'll then show you nearly all the available opportunities available in your specialty that meet your location needs. Reach out to the recruiter directly — their phone number is right there on their profile — or register with PracticeLink to send them your own profile and CV directly. When you find a job post of interest on PracticeLink, spend some time with it. Look at the map to understand the facility's exact location. Click through the images in the Slideshow. Watch the video the organization has included, and visit the community links they've provided. Doing so will give you a clearer sense of place — a welcome gift amid the stress of a job search. I spend most of my time nowadays in a much larger city, traveling back to Hinton as often as I can. Sometimes, I'm asked if I would ever move back. Most times, it feels as though I've never left. Here at PracticeLink, we're grateful for the chance to help you, too, find a practice in a place that feels like home. Sincerely, Congratulations to our latest winner!
