Successful physician placement is based upon establishing a mutually beneficial relationship between physician candidates and employers. The same can be said for the working relationships between healthcare organizations and recruitment companies. At APP, we realize that in both cases, those relationships must have as their foundation honesty, integrity, trust, respect, commitment and open communication.
During the last seventeen years of my forty year career in healthcare, I was the Vice President of Community Relations and Physician Recruitment for a not for profit hospital in the Midwest. In that role, I am proud to say that I successfully recruited eighty plus physicians to our community. I am keenly aware of the challenges related to finding and contracting with the “right” physicians in this highly competitive market. I was actively involved with telephone interviews, site visits, contract negotiations and the logistics related to relocation. Nothing can compare to the experience and expertise derived from having spent time working with physician candidates in that setting.
Candidates' priorities as well as current recruiting incentives have changed dramatically over the past five years. Techniques that worked a few years ago, will not be successful in today’s highly competitive market.

Based on your organization’s unique financial and organizational nuances, we will offer suggestions and recommendations relevant to current market trends which will assist you in offering the most competitive practice opportunity. We will also coach your team in the latest proven techniques for telephone interviews, site visits, and contract negotiations making your opportunity a stand out for candidates and their families. Only candidates who we have interviewed, screened and determined to be an exceptional fit will be presented to you.
