How to find Physicians with Boolean search strings

Use Boolean logic on Google to recruit Physicians with various backgrounds and specializations. Our search strings examples provide a basis to build your own commands and find physicians for your health care organization.


Recruiting Physicians with generic Boolean strings

Build search according to your needs:

  • -job -jobs -sample -examples, to reduce false positives.
  • intitle: or inurl: operator, to include the word “resume” or “CV” in the page title or page url respectively.

Here’s an example of a generic search string that you can further modify to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) physician -job -jobs -sample -examples

Use OR operators to expand your results with a single search. For example, use (oncologist OR radiologist), to look for both oncologists and radiologists.


Searching for Physician profiles

Run Boolean strings on Google to find Physicians on social platforms and forums. Use the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • “is on Doximity” urologist

Add more criteria in your search to find profiles that better match your requirements.

When sourcing EU candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
