Quantity vs. Quality? With Inline, You Can Have It All.

Dec 29, 2020

When you’re recruiting, how often do you think about the number of licensed, practicing physicians in the U.S.? As of March 2020, there were more than 480,000 professionally-active primary care physicians. So when speaking to third-party recruiters, it’s common for them to brag about how many physicians they have in their database. However, there are two, more important factors to consider in a sourcing partners: 1) Do they reach candidates nationwide & 2) Do they have in-depth information on those candidates. At Inline, we do both.

While the number of physicians matters, it’s even more important what we do with them. 

Inline’s nationally-reaching database is comparable in size to any database, retained recruiter, or contingent firm (in some cases, ours is larger). What should matter to you, however, is what we do with that information. With a team of advisors calling and speaking with candidates daily, our database houses the most physician-trusted, up-to-date information available. 

That’s the Inline difference. 

Physicians nationwide love working with us. Which puts you in a better position to find the perfect candidate. Consider that some physicians receive five or more calls a day from recruiters. If you’re going to pay someone to call on your behalf, don’t you want it to be the one number they know and trust? At the end of the day, what matters is the one most-qualified candidate answering their phone and applying to your job opening. 

But don’t just take our word for it. Check out what some of our most recently hired physicians had to say about their experience with Inline:


“This is the first time I have ever used a ‘company’ to enter into job negotiations, and I must say the level of commitment and professionalism in helping me was outstanding.”

-Dr. Wendy L. Frank DNP,FNP-BC


“I simply wish to commend you as this is the most professional exchange that I have had with a recruiting company.”

-Lourdemillard Bellevue, MD, MS


Even during the uncertainty of a pandemic, Inline has been the solid ground many providers have stood on for support:

“I started my employment search at a time when I was not certain how to best proceed and where to search, as I was looking for a permanent position in a new state. [Inline] spent a great deal of time with me, gaining a clear understanding of what I was searching for, and then she matched me with the perfect permanent position.

[Inline] connected me with my new employer, walked me through what my employer was searching for, and also made sure that the employer would meet my needs. [They] followed up with me consistently, as [they] set up initial conversations with my new employer, helped me navigate their interview process, followed up with my new employer on my behalf after my interviews, and gave me helpful feedback.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with [The Inline Group], [they] sincerely helped improve my quality of life.

-Arlene Taylor Rose, PMHNP-BC
