Rural Recruiting in 2021: What's Changed & What's Remained the Same

Posted by Doximity TF Team

Social shifts created by the pandemic are drawing people out of cities and into more rural areas. Country living has increased appeal: nearly half of all U.S. adults said they prefer to live in a small town or rural area in 2020, up from 39% in 2018, per a recent Gallup study.

The primary reason? Remote workers now have an opportunity to live where they want rather than living physically close to their jobs. It’s also easier to practice social distancing outside of urban areas. Small towns and rural areas are becoming more popular, but it’s important to ask: does this mean doctors are more willing to move to rural areas, too?

What Doctors Want to Know About Your Job Opportunities

Posted by Doximity TF Team

When it comes to finding a new job, what do physicians want to know? Our Client Success team at Doximity works closely with physician recruiters and share some of the most common types of questions they hear from physicians considering a new opportunity.

  1. Compensation. Not surprisingly, the most frequently asked questions are around compensation. Many physicians are advised not to ask about it during their first interview and that should go for recruiters, too. Why? It can leave a candidate thinking compensation is essential for your role. Will a candidate help you fulfill your facility’s overarching goals or mission? In general, the pay rate won’t help you with that. Discussions of compensation should also cover much more than base salary, benefits, and bonuses.

The 2021 Job Market for Physicians: What Recruiters Should Know

Posted by Doximity TF Team

Before the pandemic, physician jobs were in high demand and most specialists felt they had ample opportunities in front of them. Then, with the onset of COVID-19, physician jobs saw a decrease in demand as many elective procedures and appointments came to a halt. 

The good news is that industry experts say this dip in physician vacancies due to the pandemic is temporary, and opportunities for many specialties are already trending upward. A recent study from one recruitment firm says the pandemic’s fallout could drive up demand, as the public’s physical and mental health has likely worsened since the virus hit.
