PracticeLink’s free tools help physicians find their first or next practice with ease when it’s time for a new job.
Physicians are familiar with tools when it comes to practicing medicine. Depending on the specialty, you may use a stethoscope, scalpel, syringe, and the list goes on. Likewise, when it comes to looking for opportunities, there are many tools available. Unlike most medical tools, the job search tools that are provided by PracticeLink are free.
One of the best tools offered by PracticeLink is the website itself, PracticeLink.com.
From there, you have access to an array of services that can help you find the right opportunity. One of the most widely used is PracticeLink.com’s job-search function. Physicians, surgeons and advanced practice providers can search for opportunities posted by more than 5,000 hospitals and health care organizations nationwide. One of the great things about PracticeLink’s job search functionality is that you’re able to do a broad or precise search using keywords and multiple filters. Looking for a family medicine opportunity? Not a problem. Looking for a family medicine opportunity within five miles of the Morris Hill neighborhood in Boise, Idaho, that offers loan assistance? With PracticeLink.com, it’s easy.
Friendly on-call staff
Another useful tool that job seeking physicians should make use of is PracticeLink’s provider relations team. Think of these highly trained and experienced individuals as the owners of the neighborhood hardware store—the ones who know the best tool for any job. PracticeLink’s provider relations team helps physicians and other health care providers every day. They can help you hone your search, learn more through PracticeLink Magazine and provide thorough explanations of whatever job-search situation you may be facing. They can also help you complete your InDepth Interview, a feature of PracticeLink that lets you go deeper into the “why” behind your job search so that recruiters can know if their opportunity might be a good fit before they spend your time on a call.
More free tools
PracticeLink has multiple other tools available as well.
PracticeLink Magazine is a free, quarterly publication that covers many aspects of the physician job search: quality of life, job search and interview, and contracts and compensation.
