St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
PracticeMatch, a leading provider of practicing physician data and services to in-house physician staffing professionals, will be hosting a physician career fair in Chicago. The PracticeMatch Career Fair will take place Wednesday, November 12, 2014 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the Chicago Hilton, 720 S. Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605. Over 80 hospitals, clinics and groups will be attending from across the country to tell attendees about their career opportunities. All specialties will be represented. Those in attendance will enjoy free hors d’oeuvres and raffle prize drawings.
“Chicago is an ideal location to hold a career fair event. In the metropolitan area there are over 6,000 residents and fellows who, at various points in their careers, will be looking for new positions, as well as thousands of physicians and advanced practitioners who are looking to make an employment change,” comments Leslie Thompson, Director of Career Fairs, PracticeMatch. “We know we can be instrumental in every stage of career growth for these highly valued professionals, and we look forward to connecting to and assisting this vibrant healthcare community.”
For over five years, PracticeMatch has been hosting physician career fairs as a valuable service to connect physicians with potential employers. These events have enjoyed great success and continued growth because they create a stimulating, collaborative environment that enables physicians, in all specialties and levels of training, to speak face-to-face with representatives from some of the nation’s leading hospitals and healthcare organizations.
“As an added benefit, we always work to coordinate PracticeMatch career fairs in conjunction with industry organizations like the Illinois Staff Physician Recruiters (ISPR), who will be hosting their annual conference during this time,” remarks Leslie Thompson. “This way, physicians will be able to meet directly with many of the top healthcare organizations in the state, and ISPR members will be able to connect with the physicians at the career fair as an added benefit to attending their conference. A real win, win for all involved.”
Even more exciting is PracticeMatch’s recent partnership with MDLinx, part of the M3 Group. “The strength and category expertise of PracticeMatch, coupled with the massive reach of the trusted, award winning physician network of MDLinx, allows us to promote and expand our career fairs in ways never before possible,” comments Tim Raster, COO, PracticeMatch. “Through our partnership with MDLinx, we can present our career fairs to a network of over 600,000 physicians, significantly enhancing their career opportunities. By expanding our highly attended career fairs into new cities, we are helping the healthcare industry fill vitally important positions so necessary for the highest quality patient care. This is particularly helpful in the context of the impending physician shortage that is already having impact on the entire nation.”
