Credentialing Process

It is our goal at Vitruvian Medical to uphold the highest standards for physician recruitment firms set forth in the healthcare industry. Through our dedicated staff and detailed process we assure both our clients and practitioners, that we are willing to go the extra mile to exceed your expectations. Our credentialing process models those used by hospitals that stringently adhere to the guidelines and regulations set forth by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
