10 Ways You Excel at What You Do

Great recruiters are invaluable. You’re a crucial part of health care. Filling high-demand clinician roles amid a talent shortage takes energy, persistence, passion, guts and more. Many recruiters say the rewards outweigh the challenges, a positive attitude inspired the Doximity team to create this list of things we appreciate about health care recruiters.

    1. You excel at cultivating relationships. Recruiting is about connecting and working collaboratively, so building great relationships is where you shine. 
    2. You’re an expert in candidate identification and vetting. Your experience and expertise ensure you match the right candidates with the right roles, improving patient care and organizational success. Also, the dominant workforce, Millennials and Gen Z Physicians, approach their careers and medicine much differently than previous generations – and this is reflected in your outreach. 
    3. You know how to handle the nuances and complexities of health care. Your knowledge of everything from regulatory compliance and credentialing to specialized skill sets required for a role is invaluable. It enables you to place exceptional physicians in key roles while helping them navigate career opportunities. 
    4. You’re an essential part of the U.S. economy. As recruiters, you play a crucial role in driving the economy by placing physicians in essential positions. For instance, hospitals are the second-largest employment sector in 2024, employing nearly 5.789 million people. The healthcare industry is projected to grow from $583 billion in 2022 to $819 billion by 2027, highlighting the significant impact of your work on economic growth and stability.
    5. You help patients and communities thrive. Hiring a physician for a community provides much-needed care to people, enhancing the quality of life for everyone. Recruiting physicians to areas with severe shortages ensures access to essential medical services, significantly improving the quality of life for both patients and the community.
    6. You know the value of filling physician vacancies. You understand that “what gets measured gets managed,” so you do your best to find tangible data to substantiate recruiting ROI and budgets.  
    7. You help physicians find more career satisfaction. A work/life balance and on-the-job happiness are essential for recruiting and retaining physicians, so you prioritize the well-being of physicians and their families.
    8. You’re always looking for ways to enhance your skills and deepen your industry knowledge. Recruiting is time-consuming and energy-intensive, yet you still find the time to learn more: attending conferences, reading the latest articles and reports, participating in certification programs and more –  and we respect that. 

We honor physician recruiters' essential work and celebrate your daily contributions to health care. Your commitment to professional growth and adaptability highlights your unwavering dedication to making a difference. Thank you for your passion.
