frequently asked questions



HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE CETERA VITAE?

Cetera is pronounced like "etcetera" (without the "et" of course). We chose the name because we loved the idea of consistently offering more options for all parties. And Vitae, pronounced vee-tay, is a nod to the curriculum vitae associated with job searching and recruitment. You can call us CV for short.

Does Cetera Vitae offer medical services?

Cetera Vitae is a business support services company. We assist medical service companies and institutions with their allied health imaging and neurodiagnostic staffing needs rather than providing medical services ourselves.

Is Cetera Vitae a staffing agency?

We are a recruiting and referral hub. We connect independent contractors and full-time job seekers with healthcare employees. We do not charge a daily fee for healthcare services or employ allied healthcare workers like a staffing agency.
