The Clinician Recruitment and Workforce Development Service is dedicated to improving health care access in medically underserved areas. We assist mission-driven clinicians in finding permanent placements within community health centers located throughout rural and urban areas of Illinois. IPHCA can help clinicians find a practice that meets both their personal and professional needs. IPHCA has worked with over 4,000 clinicians in the past 13 years.
Taking applicants preferences into consideration, we perform an initial screening and match applicants to community health center sites. Applicants will receive detailed practice opportunity profiles, including relevant information about the position and practice so that they can make an informed decision. We then forward the applicants CV to the sites in which they have expressed interest. IPHCA will never send a candidates CV to a health center without the applicants consent.
