KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Identifying and evaluating the best opportunities for career development can be challenging for emergency physicians. Given a lack of available tools to assist these providers, and the increasingly widespread use of personal mobile technologies such as Apple’s iPad, TeamHealth has developed a free, electronic career library app to help emergency medicine physicians develop and advance their careers.
The TeamHealth career library app was designed to give providers insight and information they need for making important decisions about their careers. Available as a free download through Apple’s App Store, the library includes a directory of all of TeamHealth’s job openings across the country, as well functionality for exploring specific geographic locations with information on everything from local schools to available real estate. In addition, its extensive collection of emergency medicine articles provides updates on the latest news in the field and outlines proven tips and strategies for everything from improving listening skills to developing a professional presence online.
“We recognize what goes into making a career decision goes far beyond a postcard about a hospital,” said Dr. Sujal Mandavia, physician project manager for the development of the app. “Given that roughly 30 percent of physicians already use an iPad and another 28 percent are likely to buy one by the end of the year(i), we decided this electronic library was the best and fastest way to help residents and those already practicing make the best decision concerning their career. We chose BottleRocket Apps, an industry leader in mobile development, as our development partner to ensure emergency physicians get the best experience the iPad has to offer.”
