Title: Social Medicine Recruiter

About Arc Health: Arc Health is the first public benefit company formed to disrupt the medical staffing industry—- focused exclusively on advancing health equity through recruiting and retaining skilled and socially-committed healthcare practitioners to serve rural and underserved communities. One of the most crucial elements of a strong health system is skilled health staff. Without talented and dedicated medical professionals, there can be no strong health system. In underserved rural communities in the United States and around the world, there is a near universal relationship between persistent poverty and a lack of health workers. Often, financial constraints aren’t the main reason behind this lack: while there are often public funds allocated to hire health professionals, qualified and willing applicants are insufficient, especially in underserved communities. This situation opens a market for recruitment companies to fill vacancies with temporary health workers. As these for-profit companies focus on short-term placements, the result is that health systems lack the committed partnerships that foster the long-term recruitment and retention of qualified talent AND those underserved do not receive the quality health services they deserve.
Arc Health was co-founded by Dr. Phuoc Le, Dr. Sriram Shamasunder, and Dave Shaffer. Drs. Le and Shamasunder are physicians and professors with decades of experience in serving the poorest communities in the U.S. and abroad, from Los Angeles to Liberia. In 2015, they cofounded the HEAL Initiative Global Health Fellowship at University of California-San Francisco, which has grown to over 100 current and past fellows in the U.S. and in seven other countries. Dave Shaffer is a socially minded business professional with 20+ years of leading and expanding mission-based organizations.
