Urgent Care is the hardest to recruit of the 15 most in-demand physician specialties for this year’s third quarter, according to the latest PracticeLink Physician Recruitment Index.

Six months ago, Urgent Care didn’t even make the list of the 15 Most In-Demand Specialties, which are ranked according to the total number of jobs per specialty in PracticeLink’s Job Bank and then sorted by physician supply.

Urgent Care practitioners, because they are in high demand, can expect more negotiating power when looking for a position.

Because of the high demand, health care facilities should also expect to spend more time and money to fill Urgent Care openings.

The PracticeLink Physician Recruitment Index measures the relative ease or difficulty of recruitment based on supply and demand information gathered from the PracticeLink Job Bank. The more jobs per candidate, the more difficult health care recruiters may find the search for those specialists.

PracticeLink.com is the most widely used online physician job bank, with 15,5000 physician jobs from 5,000 health care facilities nationwide. Search the PracticeLink Job Bank to find jobs in your specialty and ideal location.
