Locum Tenens and Permanent Academic Medicine Jobs

Recognizing the unique nuances of recruitment in academic medicine, AMN Healthcare enlisted the expertise of three former medical school deans to establish a division dedicated to placing physicians and physician leaders in academic and research settings. Since those foundational days in 2012, we have created a culture of innovation and excellence in placing over 1,000 medical faculty, department chairs, laboratory directors and other leaders at top academic medical centers throughout the United States.

"During the entire process, I felt my recruiter was working on my behalf. She consulted with me regarding the offer and worked continually as a liaison until the offer was arranged to my satisfaction. I have already recommended Merritt Hawkins to a urologist colleague and I would absolutely work with them again. Keep up the amazing work!"
