Survey: Physician Residents and Fellows Start Job Search Earlier

Of physician residents and fellows graduating in 2013, 61 percent started interviewing prior to January, up from 41 percent of those graduating in 2012, according to the Residents and Fellows Survey conducted by Cejka Search.

Additionally, 52 percent of those graduating this year had contracts signed by March, compared to 31 percent of last year's graduates.

Based on behaviors and decision-making factors in the survey, the majority of 2014 graduates will start looking for job opportunities soon, in late summer 2013. "Physician recruiters must take strategic action — early — in order to recruit the top physicians emerging from training," Lori Schutte, president of Cejka Search, said in the news release. "The rise of physician employment, integration of medical practices and changes in reimbursement structures will continue to pressure healthcare organizations to find the best talent who fit their organizations."
