Academic Medicine Executive Search

Although all medical schools are devoted to the elimination of human suffering, each medical school is different. Research-intensive medical schools are as different as those who do some research but are mostly clinically focused, as are teaching-focused medical schools.

Attracting leaders with the personal and professional characteristics to match the schools' mission is imperative to ensuring success and requires the counsel of an experienced search partner.

We are a recognized national leader in the recruitment of senior leadership talent in the areas of academic medicine/health sciences.  We are routinely called upon to identify the next CEO, COO, Deans of Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Osteopathic Medicine, Veterinary Sciences, Public Health, Cancer Center Director, Department Chairs, and high-level senior administrators on behalf of leading medical schools, health sciences programs, academic medical centers, research institutes, cancer centers, children’s hospitals, hospital systems, and faculty practice plans.

In every instance, the stakes are high — as are the standards to which we hold ourselves.

Smart leadership starts here.
