Doximity Takes on Physician Shortage With Launch of Talent Finder
Largest Physician Network Matches Members With Personalized Career
SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/12/13 -- Doximity, the largest
and fastest-growing secure network for physicians with over 220,000
members, today announced the launch of Talent Finder, a service to
connect doctors with new careers and consulting opportunities.
Expansions in coverage due to the Affordable Care Act and an aging
population are accelerating demand for medical talent throughout the
United States. The medical industry, however, still relies largely on
classified ads, career fairs, letter blasts, and job boards. The
result is that physicians have a hard time sorting through the noise
to pinpoint opportunities with a mutual fit.
With Doximity Talent Finder, member physicians can share their
curriculum vitae including certifications, research, awards and
specialized clinical interests. Physicians can also specify
geographic work preferences along with expectations for salary and
call duty. Doximity members are among the most accomplished
practitioners in medicine, with more than 1 million peer-reviewed
publications and over 60 percent having trained at a top quintile
medical school or residency program.
To date, more than 200 top hospitals and health systems have
beta-tested the service, including Cedars-Sinai, Ohio State
University, Kaiser Permanente, One Medical Group, Allina Health and
Banner Health. Both employers and physicians alike have found it more
efficient than traditional methods.
Dr. Moshe Usadi, a family medicine physician from Charlotte, was
interested in moonlighting work, but too busy to scour the job boards
each week. But after a colleague invited him to join Doximity, "I
learned of an opportunity in my hometown -- just what I was looking
for," says Dr. Usadi. "I was impressed because the recruiter had
clearly read my profile and noted my interests. For the first time, a
recruiting service provided a match that made sense for me. I'm not
sure how I would have found this had it not been for Doximity."
As a secure relationship-based network, most of Doximity's day-to-day
use revolves around patient care and referrals. But these connections
have proved useful for career networking as well. The "Forward to a
Colleague" feature has proven especially popular, allowing physicians
to discover opportunities through referrals from the colleagues that
know them best.
"We're facing a physician shortage in this country, so doctors are
highly sought after and more mobile than ever," said Jeff Tangney,
CEO and founder of Doximity. "Doximity helps match the right
physician with the right position based on their unique skill set,
allowing doctors to be 'free agents' in a way never before possible."
Launched in 2011, Doximity (www.doximity.com)
connects physicians to make them more successful and productive. With
over 30% of U.S. physicians as members, collaborating across every
specialty and academic medical center, Doximity is the largest secure
medical network on the Internet. Created by the founders of Epocrates
(NASDAQ: EPOC), Doximity is headquartered in Silicon Valley.
