All international recruitment firms and entities which recruit health professionals to work in the United States are encouraged to apply for Alliance Certification. By applying for certification, a recruiter attests that they comply with all provisions of our Health Care Code for Ethical International Recruitment and Employment Practices.

This Certification Application sets forth the requirements for certification. Organizations interested in obtaining certification should complete the application and submit it along with the specified supporting documentation to the Alliance for review. If approved, the organization is authorized to use the Alliance Certification Seal in its recruitment efforts.

Any information provided in the application process will remain confidential. The Alliance strictly protects any proprietary information disclosed by your organization. If you have any questions about the Code, the certification process, or this application, please contact us, and we would be happy to discuss it further with you.

Staffing Firms
Under the staffing model, a FEHP signs a contract with the staffing firm and continues to be an employee of the firm for the duration of their contract.

Placement Firms
Under the placement model, the recruitment firm matches each FEHP to a health care institution, where the worker then signs a contract directly with the employer.

Direct Hiring
Under the direct hiring model, there is no third-party recruitment firm involved in the process. A FEHP signs a contract directly with the hospital or institution where they will be working when they arrive.
