About Us

DirectShifts has set out to modernize healthcare recruiting. We're a team of physicians and entrepreneurs who have come together to solve a major pain point facing medical professionals today.

We're making it easier for clinicians and administrators to connect about open roles. Healthcare is a noble profession burdened by loss of autonomy and an increasing number of intermediaries between patients and providers. Our fast, transparent, and affordable recruiting solutions help providers focus on better care.

Our Mission

Given the sheer complexity of the modern medical industry, it has become increasingly difficult for facilities to find qualified professionals. The DirectShifts platform is an innovative solution that streamlines and modernizes the process of matching clinicians to jobs and on-boarding them expeditiously. Inspired out of personal need by our physician led team, we understand the plight of today's medical professionals and aim to disrupt the staffing market by empowering those providing it. Come join us in building the future of healthcare.
