What is a Passive Candidate? Answer: this is a practicing physician who has been personally contacted via phone. Generally they are not actively looking for an opportunity but have planned to do so within the year and are open to reviewing opportunities. Historically they have not posted their contact information on the internet or association sites. Passive candidates are an excellent source for placements. As a rule they are not available via the internet, simply because they have not posted themselves. This should give us a nice edge up in presentations of unexposed candidates. You will need to be patient and let time take its course in the placement.
