The Internet appears to be transforming the way hospital and clinic administrators recruit physicians to fill temporary vacancies and the way doctors search for jobs.

A survey by LocumTenens.com of 16,000 health care administrators and 8,000 physicians showed that 96 percent and 94 percent, respectively, were "Internet active." In fact, 40 percent of the administrators reported that they use recruiting Web sites in filling vacant positions, and 44 percent of physicians said they have used the Internet for an online job search.

Psychiatrist Christian Gauderer, M.D., is one of those. While working as a clinic administrator in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Gauderer used the Internet to find several placements in the United States when he decided he’d had enough of administration. Gauderer used LocumTenens.com to find positions at hospitals in Boston and New Jersey, he told Psychiatric News.

"The Internet is a valuable and efficient resource for health care facilities trying to recruit physicians," said David Roush, president of LocumTenens.com. "Recruitment Web sites save time and money for the recruiter searching for qualified staff. Physicians also appreciate the convenience of the Internet, in that they have more control over the job search than when they go through an agency."
