Nearly 50,000 physicians work locum tenens assignments each year – caring for an estimated 7.5 million Americans (that’s up from 26,000 in 2002) – and 94% of U.S. healthcare facilities now use locum tenens providers annually (per Staff Care’s most recent Survey of Temporary Physician Staffing Trends).

The Doximity Guide to Recruiting Primary Care Physicians

Posted by Doximity TF Team

Primary Care physicians are the backbone of the American healthcare system. Indeed, studies show that states with a higher ratio of primary care physicians have better health and lower rates of mortality (per National Institutes of Health): Patients who regularly see a primary care physician also have lower health costs than those without one.

This primary care physician workforce is best positioned to meet the needs of our population, yet an alarming shortage of primary care physicians is looming: the Association of American Medical Colleges predicts a shortage of between 21,100 and 55,200 primary care physicians by 2032. The major factor driving demand for physicians continues to be a growing, aging population. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the nation’s population is estimated to grow by more than 10% by 2032, with those over age 65 increasing by 48%.

Posted by Doximity TF Team

And top-level candidates aren’t just looking for a job; they want a fulfilling career that aligns with their professional and personal goals. Doctors see what they do professionally as an extension of their own values, so finding a recruiter who understands that can decrease the chances of a mis-hire – and increase the possibility of hiring a physician who stays.
