Webinar Overview

Recruiting is challenging in any industry but is particularly difficult in healthcare. Provider organizations looking to compete for top talent need to be creative and persistent to attract, engage, convert and retain talented clinicians. This session will walk attendees through the current trends and challenges in provider recruitment today. We will review and discuss:

  • The high degree of competitiveness and the need to differentiate to even be considered
  • Expectations of the next generation and their reasons for ruling out practice options
  • The growing number of visa candidates in key specialties such as primary care
  • Why practice fit is more important than compensation for clinician retention

Beyond the challenges, the session will offer recommendations and recruitment performance requirements including the search strategy, team readiness, investments and senior leadership buy-in and support.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand what has changed in recruiting clinicians in today’s volatile healthcare environment.
  • List the core elements that clinicians are looking in a position
  • Describe how various messages can influence a potential candidate, including what your organization uniquely has to offer.
