We know what great leaders can do, and we’re passionate about providing the best executive candidates to our clients. Our people and access to invaluable data are a potent formula for success, ultimately building successful careers, contributing to better healthcare, and engendering inclusion.
The Curative Executive Search team has over 100 years of experience recruiting medical professionals. We understand the needs of healthcare enterprises and their candidates for employment. And as the recruiting arm of Doximity, the largest community of healthcare professionals in the world, we are right where most clinicians are. You could say they are our life’s blood.
Physicians understand the business of healthcare from the bottom up. From hands on knowledge of the complexity of care to critical decision-making skills, they have the experience necessary to help deliver efficient, high-quality patient care. Whether CEO, CMO or CNO, a hospital executive candidate’s clinical background improves placement outcomes.
The right academic physician leader can define their department, attracting top faculty, funding, and recognition. Curative Executive Search draws upon years of experience recruiting in academia and the data and intelligence of Doximity to identify a diverse selection of candidates that share your vision. We’ll shorten the span of a typical search and provide an exceptional candidate experience, all while respecting the traditions and values of academic medicine.
Although minorities represent 31% of hospital patients, only 14% of hospital board seats, 12% of executive leadership positions, and 17% of management positions in hospitals are held by them. We are dedicated to partnering with clients to change these numbers to help make hospitals reflect their communities. By combining the yin and yang of our smart tech with a human fusion approach, we deliver results with mindful compliance. We know what the future looks like for successful, diverse organizations and how to get you there.
You’ll get the attention you deserve from the “A team” because there is no B team. A single contact makes for white glove service for both our institutional clients and candidates. Our boutique size means there are fewer barriers – we can recruit from more institutions. Being smaller also means we’re more focused, flexible and able to work with you for an enhanced recruitment experience. And though we’re lean, with the power of Doximity and Curative behind us, we’re big enough to deliver the goods.

He credits his experience in the Marine Corps with his belief that everything is possible with hard work and his determination to care for his family inspires him to help others. “The choice seems clear – of two candidates of equal ability, one would always select the one with a clinical background. Curative Executive Search’s specialization in placing clinical executives at all levels in healthcare makes us unique.”

“In my prior role at a large Midwest academic medical enterprise, we found Doximity to be highly effective at leveraging our recruitment efforts. Fidelis Partners has a track record of extraordinary engagement with its clients or ‘partners’ along with its outcomes based business model.
