I worked with DCA for the first time this past year as we were recruiting for a Psychiatry Program Director for a new Psychiatry Residency.  Throughout the process I found that all of the DCA representatives were dedicated and professional.  In a short period of time they developed a list of qualified candidates.  We were then able to select a final 3 candidates for formal interviews.  All 3 candidates were outstanding and we would have been happy with any of the final candidates in our new position. I was very impressed when we initially met with the recruiters from DCA on site and they did a wonderful job of understanding of our mission and goals in the recruitment process.  Throughout our work with DCA they communicated very effectively and did a master full job of gently encouraging busy physicians to stay on task with the recruiting process. I could not be more pleased with the whole process and I would certainly plan to use DCA again for a national search.
