Most job openings for physicians are in hospitals, while demand for private practice physicians is on the wane, a national survey shows.

Merritt Hawkins’ 2011 Review of Physician Recruiting Incentives tracks more than 2,660 physician recruiting assignments the Irving, TX-based physician recruiters conducted nationwide from April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011. In that time, 56% of the physician search assignments featured jobs with hospitals, up from 23% five years ago.
