Smith & Wilkinson is the nation's premier permanent Physician Recruitment boutique search and consulting firm. As the industry leader, our mission is to create lasting permanent matches between specialty healthcare organizations and providers seeking to enhance their professional and personal lives. Our focus and attention to detail with both clients and candidates allows us to recruit and retain some of the best talent that healthcare can offer, while simultaneously assuring that the placements are an outstanding match for both parties. Smith & Wilkinson focuses on both permanent placement solutions for physicians, as well as placing Locum Tenens throughout the country.
The recent challenges facing physician recruitment have been palpable in the U.S. since the mid-2000s and will become gradually more and more complex in the face of the growing Physician shortage. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), there will be a deficit of over 90,000 physicians by 2025, including shortages of both physician specialists as well as primary care physicians. The major strategy for the healthcare industry to remain successful, efficient and sustainable is to plan for this shortage by attracting new talent to key positions now.
The number of physician Locum Tenens jobs grows every day as more organizations, physician practices, and hospitals turn to Locum Tenens Physicians to fill their vacant positions. For providers who are looking for a flexible lifestyle, a change of pace or to earn extra income, a Locum assignment can have many benefits.
