PhysEmp: Since 1990, Helping Physicians Find New Opportunities

Did you know that PhysEmp started out as a magazine? Yep, that’s right. In 1990, our CEO, Robert Truog, published the first issue of Physicians Employment, a national guide listing positions in all medical specialties.

If you’ve been a practicing physician for 25 or more years, you might remember thumbing through the guide to read about the latest jobs across the country. Now, of course, paper is passé. How the times have changed!

Today, of course,  physician jobs in all specialties can be viewed at the click of a few keys at You can filter your search to a granular level, including by specialty or state. If you create a free profile, you’ll receive email updates on new opportunities as they come in, in real-time.

With PhysEmp, you can move from device to device as you search and apply to jobs using our mobile-optimized site.

Back in the early ’90s, though, if you wanted to read up on the latest opportunities across the U.S., you would have had to flip through Physicians Employment magazine, seeing notices like this one, below, from Universal Health Services, Inc.

We’re proud to say that, nearly three decades later, Universal Health Services, Inc.  continues to choose us to list their current physician job openings. This is true for many other healthcare employers and recruitment firms across the nation. Our client retention rate is among the highest in the industry.

In 1994, we moved our Physicians Employment magazine to an online model, shortened our name to PhysEmp, and the rest is history!

Speaking of history, here’s a photo of our fearless leader and CEO Robert Truog back in the early ’90s.

Dashing as ever, Mr. Truog!

“The name’s Truog. Robert Truog. Are you interested in a copy of our Physicians Employment guide?”

Please let us know how we’re doing. Drop us a line anytime to share your feedback. Fortunately, you can do so at the click of a key these days, rather than by carrier pigeon or Pony Express, you know, the way the job search went back in the old days… 🙂
