Physicians Still Number One Recruiting Priority, But Demand Rising For Other Professions
(HealthNewsDigest.com) - DENVER - June 16, 2014 - According to a new report of its first quarter recruiting data, HEALTHeCAREERS, the leading healthcare recruitment website, witnessed a 16 percent increase in the total number of jobs posted year-over-year with strong growth among non-physician roles.
Though demand for physicians remains strong, accounting for 44 percent of all jobs posted to HEALTHeCAREERS, other healthcare roles showed considerable growth. Recruiting for information technology (23 percent), allied health (15 percent) and nurse practitioner roles (15 percent) grew substantially.

Infection disease/HIV, geriatric and emergency medicine showed the most growth among physician specialty roles.
Nursing, nurse practitioner and physician assistant jobs accounted for 27 percent of all job openings in Q1 2014.
"Our job posting data offers a compelling portrait of the healthcare recruiting landscape," said Bryan Bassett, Managing Director of HEALTHeCAREERS.

It's exciting to witness first-hand the growth in this industry."
