By Survey Report: Millennial doctors still finding jobs the old-fashioned way | By Chad Saley
Finding a new job isn’t easy
Finding a new position can be stressful. The top stressors of finding a new position are finding the right job fit (60%), negotiating contract terms (58%), and negotiating compensation (56%). The potential requirement for relocation is also a source of stress for young physicians. Factors such as competition, preparing CVs, and networking are lowest on the list of stressors.
CompHealth, in partnership with Hanover Research, administered a survey to 592 early career physicians. The physicians surveyed had completed their medical training between 2014 and 2018. The goal of this study is to better understand the processes by which residents, fellows, and physicians search for jobs, to gain insights into their plans for post-training life, and to shed light on their perceptions of locum tenens.

CompHealth was founded in 1979 and is now the largest locum tenens staffing agency in the U.S. The company also specializes in permanent physician placement and both temporary and permanent allied healthcare staffing.
