    Top 5 job search apps for physicians

    The days of physicians walking into an office and handing a prospective employer a typed copy of their curriculum vitae are long gone.

    As the career search turns digital, smartphones and tablets are making the process even easier – and that’s exactly what job-seeking doctors want.

    A 2010 New England Journal of Medicine survey found that 63% of physicians with mobile devices are interested in using a job-listing app to search for available positions.

    Here are five job search apps to help physicians get started:

    Physician recruitment firms have begun to create their own apps, and Merritt Hawkins is leading the way.
