Whitman Partners places more Directors of Surgical Services than any search firm in the country. Our team knows the talent who can implement a robotics program, decrease turn times, mentor staff, or is a master of surgeon relations. But more importantly, we also know what makes the candidates tick.
We can tell you who’s looking to move back to the east coast to be near their grandkids, who insists on only living where there’s warm weather, or which candidate is ready for that next step in their career.
These are not bullet points on a resume. They are the qualities, nuances, and the secret sauce that makes one candidate the right candidate for the role of a lifetime.
