Top 5 job search apps for physicians

July 26, 2013

As the career search turns digital, mobile devices are making the process even easier. Here are five job search apps to help physicians get started.

The days of physicians walking into an office and handing a prospective employer a typed copy of their curriculum vitae are long gone.

As the career search turns digital, smartphones and tablets are making the process even easier – and that’s exactly what job-seeking doctors want.

A 2010 New England Journal of Medicine survey found that 63% of physicians with mobile devices are interested in using a job-listing app to search for available positions.

Here are five job search apps to help physicians get started:
 

MHA by Merritt Hawkins

Physician recruitment firms have begun to create their own apps, and Merritt Hawkins is leading the way. MHA allows physicians to search for available positions by region, profession and specialty. After selecting a position, a quick contact button will put interested candidates in touch with a recruiter.
 

 

NEJM CareerCenter by the New England Journal of Medicine

By uploading their CV, physicians can apply for available positions directly from this NEJM app. Push notifications alert users of new postings, and physicians can email jobs of interest to their account. 
 

 

American Academy of Family Physicians by PDA Verticals Corporation

In addition to providing medical news, blog briefs and peer-reviewed journal articles, this app offers a career link for the latest physician job postings.
 

 

Locum Jobs by Run Mobile LLC

Locum Leaders has created an app that allows physicians to search for locum tenens positions nationwide. Users can upload their CV, apply for positions, and share jobs with others.
 

 

HealthcareJobsite.com by Beyond.com

While this app isn’t exclusively for physicians, it has features that might be of interest to them in their job search. By connecting with physicians’ social media accounts, this app can locate available positions where their friends work.
