This role involves maintaining the executive's appointment schedule by planning and scheduling meetings, conferences, teleconferences and travel, as well as maintaining customer and operational confidence. Typically there are more of these positions in cities with larger healthcare systems; however, some of the best locations for job seekers are in smaller markets due to a lack of qualified candidates in these areas.
