Q: How are interviews scheduled for out of town candidates?
A: We will arrange for your flight and hotel accommodations if needed. We will also reserve a GPS-enabled rental car for you, since you may be traveling to more than one of our locations during your interview.
Q: Can I bring a spouse or significant other?
A: Absolutely. The next step in your career is a big decision and we want the people who are important to you to be part of it. They’re welcome to join you for any scheduled recruitment dinner or tour of the community.
Q: How can I learn more about the community?
A: If you’re interested, we will arrange a tour for you so you can see different neighborhoods and get a feel for available housing, schools and other important elements of life here. Brief information about some of the local communities is available here.
Q: Do I need to provide references?
A: Yes, after the phone interview we will request a minimum of three professional references. Of course, we understand the need for confidentiality, so former colleagues can serve as references. If you’re a fellow or resident looking for a position after your training is complete, then a reference from your program director will be required.
Q: How many people will I interview with?
A: We want candidates to get a full perspective on the departments they seek to join, but are also respectful of your time. We try to limit one-on-one interviews to no more than eight, though you may be meeting other people in group get-togethers and tours.
Q: After the interview, will I hear either way about your decision?
A: Yes, we will notify all candidates of our decision. Your assigned recruiter will be in contact with you throughout the process to keep you apprised of the status of your candidacy.
Q: Are part-time opportunities available?
A: Many of our clinical departments offer flexible hours to accommodate physicians’ personal schedules. We encourage you to reach out to our recruitment staff to learn more about these opportunities.
Q: Are research or teaching opportunities available?
A: As the principal academic affiliate of the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, we have medical students and residents who rotate through our hospitals and some positions offer clinical, non-tenure opportunities.
Q: How are salaries determined?
A: Our salaries are internally equitable and externally competitive. They are benchmarked against regional standards of the Medical Group Management Association, in addition to clinical and non-clinical skills assessment. Under our compensation model, physicians earn a defined base salary during an initial ramp-up period, shifting toward one that considers productivity and other factors.
Q: Where can I learn more about benefits?
A: We offer a comprehensive slate of benefits, which you can learn more about here. Additional information will be provided in the course of the hiring process.
Q: Can I apply even if there are no positions in my field currently available?
A: You are welcome to email us your resume and we will keep it on file and contact you when a position in your field becomes available. Or you can apply here.
