Advanced practice clinician hires more than doubling in 2016
Advanced practice clinician placements are on track to double that of last year, according to The Medicus Firm, a physician staffing services company.
Last year, advanced practice clinicians, such as physician assistants and nurse practitioners, accounted for just more than 8 percent of all clinician placements made by The Medicus Firm. This proportion has grown to 16 percent for the first half of 2016. This is part of a larger trend of increasing advanced practice placements, which has steadily grown over the last four years.
In fact, physician assistants are now the second-most placed provider to family medicine physicians, and nurse practitioners broke into the top 10 this year as well, according to The Medicus Firm. Other providers in high demand are hospitalists, cardiologists and OB/Gyns.
