Hospitalist Recruiting - Temporary and Permanent Placement


Temporary/Locums Placement

For Hospitals and Hospitalist Groups

Salient MD has placed over 250 Hospitalists with over 60 Medical Centers and Hospitalist groups since 2008. Our Hospitalists understand the importance of representing you with professionalism and a sense of commitment. We not only have the ability to meet your temporary coverage needs with quality Hospitalists, but to do so at a great value.

Also, Salient offers a unique “Hospitalist Locums Management Service.” We will assume responsibility for filling your Hospitalist Schedule gaps, and coordinate placement amongst the various Locums agencies. This will free up invaluable staff time, provide peace of mind that the Schedule will be covered, and typically result in lower overall Locums expense.

For Hospitalists

Understanding your preferred coverage arrangement is important, and we strive to create the right match for you as a physician. When you as a physician commit to providing temporary hospitalist coverage, we understand that you are making a sacrifice to spend time away from family and friends. You may also be agreeing to provide coverage at a facility or for a group with whom you are generally unfamiliar. It is with these understandings that we strive to create a great coverage experience for you.

Salient MD provides very competitive compensation and professional liability coverage. We assist with Medical Staff Credentialing and Orientation Scheduling. We will also assist with travel arrangements, if necessary, for your assignment. And we are available to help with any issues which may arise during the course of an engagement.

Permanent Placement

For Hospitals and Hospitalist Groups

The Principals of Salient MD have decades of experience in physician recruitment, with a specialized focus on Hospitalist Recruiting. We are adept at sourcing Hospitalists independently, and pride ourselves in the ability to come alongside your physician recruiting team and serve as an additional resource and trusted partner. Most of our Hospitalist Search Agreements are Contingency Contracts.

Effective Hospital Medicine is a team effort, and the effective recruiting of permanent members of your Hospitalist Group is as well. There is typically one opportunity to create a favorable impression, and we will help energize and perfect the recruiting process.

For Hospitalists

We understand that a Hospitalist who is seeking a full-time position is certainly evaluating the position responsibilities and associated compensation. But almost all are also evaluating the culture of the Hospitalist Group, the relationship with Medical Center Leadership, the community at-large, quality of school systems, etc.

Salient MD is adept of connecting Hospitalists with opportunities that are by and large a good fit (on the surface) – and then effectively walking a Hospitalist and their significant others through the process of evaluating the tangible and intangible aspects of each opportunity presented.

Most of our placement activities involve no formal commitment. But we also offer an Exclusive Agency Agreement, whereby Salient MD formally represents you throughout the entire placement process.

Salient MD has been extraordinary to partner with this year. We were struggling with hospitalist staffing since we had limited contacts and our ‘regular’ physician resources changed. Salient MD was asked if they could help with our burden. They immediately tapped into their network and began to find coverage. They tailored the plan to meet our needs and have been flexible as needs changed. The Salient MD team is diligent, trustworthy, professional, and have made our staffing headaches go away!
