Many physicians believe that only they can handle the search for recruiting a new physician, and botch the effort! These failures are usually due to two shortages: time and attention. Doctors lack the time to prepare effective want ads and training program letters. They’re too preoccupied with day-to-day patient matters to thoughtfully cull the CVs they receive and to do some initial telephone screening.
New-doctor recruitment, though essential to a practice’s continued success, too often receives second-rate physician attention. It shouldn’t be that way!
Except for the critical aspects of interviews and selection, your manager or administrator can probably handle recruitment details better than you, the physician.
