"The overwhelming demand for our services should prove that this industry needs a change. We decided to create DoctorWish and enable hospitals, recruiting agencies, and employers to seek us out for a wage we are comfortable with.
St Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) August 18, 2015
With a growing and aging population, the demand for doctors is constantly rising and many areas within the country are already experiencing a shortage of them. A recent study conducted by the Association of American Medical Colleges predicts that by the year 2025, the United States will be facing a shortage of approximately 60,000 doctors. The demand for doctors is high and this poses a serious risk to patients.
It can take anywhere from five to ten years for a doctor to become fully trained. This means that shortages predicted for 2025 have to be addressed now so that patients have access to the care that they need. Unfortunately, many doctors have said that they are being undercut by recruitment agencies and cheated by many hospital employers. In order to combat this issue, a website that was designed by doctors for doctors ‘DoctorWish.com’ allows recruiting agencies and employers to seek out the doctors and not the other way around. "We were tired of everyone taking advantage of us." said a California based physician who is listed on Doctorwish.com. "The overwhelming demand for our services should prove that this industry needs a change. We get multiple calls from recruiters who may not know our wishlist or specific desires. A lot of Doctors screen calls from recruiters for this reason. We decided to create DoctorWish.com to enable hospitals, recruiting agencies, and employers match our wage and work periods. We are doctors that want to get paid what we deserve.”
The process of becoming a doctor on DoctorWish is quite simple. Physicians can sign up online and set up a profile that details their preferred pay rates, dates, locations, and the period they are available for employment. Each profile is then considered a ‘Doctor Wish’ and this is what prospective employers use to seek out available doctors.
The website ensures that the doctors get the price they want and the employers get a professional doctor who is happy to be working. A number of physicians have said that one of the most important features of the site is the fact they encourage doctors to be honest and realistic with their preferred rates. The DoctorWish website specifically states that doctors should ask for approximately 10 - 25% above their current pay rate and to never ask for a rate that is unreasonable.
