Since 1978, Tyler & Company has gained the reputation of being one of the nation’s most successful search firms serving academic medicine and the health sciences.  We utilize our extensive network of academic and healthcare leaders to strategically place deans, department chairs, division chiefs, administrators, senior faculty and research scientists for our clients.  Whether conducting senior leadership searches for academic health science centers, medical centers, teaching hospitals or research centers and institutes, our goal is to find strong, talented candidates that can advance our clients' educational, clinical, research and community engagement missions.  Our team of experienced consultants and research associates work diligently with hiring officers and search committees to bring only the best and brightest candidates forward for consideration. We partner with experts in their respective academic fields to strengthen our body of knowledge and understanding of the environmental factors impacting academic medicine and health sciences.


Our Academic Medicine and Health Sciences Leadership Practice is led by a senior consultant with decades of experience in academic medicine and the health sciences. The practice’s members are healthcare executive recruitment specialists, the majority averaging more than 25 years of experience searching for talent.
