How to Use Your Past Open Positions for Sourcing Physician Candidates

 
 
When a new position opens up in your organizations, many recruiters begin the process of sourcing physician candidates by starting from scratch. They’ll utilize email, job boards, and direct mail to source candidates for each new position, but many times they already have the perfect candidate hidden in their internal database. Especially in larger organizations, new positions will open  up in the same specialty at different practices regularly, and just because a candidate wasn’t the right fit for one practice opportunity doesn’t mean they would be a perfect fit for your current opening.

3 Things NP Job Satisfaction Teaches Us About Physician Recruitment

A recent study conducted by the American Association of Medical Colleges came up with a shocking discovery. Many Primary Care Physicians today are recommending careers in medicine – but not as physicians. The survey instead states that many of these primary care physicians, dissatisfied with their current positions, would recommend a career as a Nurse Practitioner to a qualified college student but would not recommend a career as a physician. This is in spite of the widespread knowledge among respondents of a Primary Care physician shortage. Primary Care Nurse Practitioners on the other hand overwhelmingly reported a high degree of satisfaction with their positions, with 88% stating they would recommend a career as a Nurse Practitioner. 
 
So how can we use this data to improve our Primary Care Physician recruitment & Retention? Below are three things that influence the satisfaction of Nurse Practitioners – and how you can use them to attract top physician talent.

3 Ways the ‘End Around’ Harms the Physician Recruitment Process

When your in a position to recruit highly qualified physicians, your reputation can make or break your ability to succeed. But it’s not only your reputation with prospective candidates that matters – your reputation among your fellow in-house and third party recruiters is important as well. One of the fastest ways to harm your reputation among your peers is to violate the National Association of Physician Recruiters’ code of ethics, and one of the easiest ways to violate it is with the end around.
 
Oftentimes this is done when an in-house recruiter purchases or has access to a list of physicians. Rather than contact them directly, the recruiter may wait to see if a third party recruiter they partner with refers one of the physicians on the list for a position. The in-house recruiter then claims they were already aware of the candidate, and goes on to contact them now that they know that the candidate is interested in the position.  Not only is this dishonest, but it can have the following reprucussions that can place a recruiter’s ability to fill an open position in jeopardy.

Drafting a Physician Contract? 4 Things to Get Right to Close the Deal

The site visits are completed, the verdict is in, and your practice is ready to make a formal offer to an outstanding physician candidate who you believe will be the perfect addition to your team. While the feelings of both parties might make this hire seem like a sure thing, the deal is far from done. At this point, it is up to the employer to sell the prospective candidate on how and  why practicing as part of their team will be beneficial – and the physician contract is one way to show them. “A contract is a sales document” says Roger Bonds of the American Academy of Medical Management. It is in the employer’s best interest to get the following sections right to make sure that they not only seal the deal with a prospective physician candidate, but also increase the likelihood that they will stay on long term.

This is  why manpower planning for the long term is so important for physician recruitment. By being able to forecast when your organization will need physicians, a recruiter can begin to source candidates and develop relationships years ahead of the projected need.

4 Ways to Screen Physician Candidates for Emotional Intelligence

The Affordable Care Act brought many changes to healthcare when it was finally implemented. From changing how care was delivered to how it was paid for and reimbursed, the ACA has forever changed the field of healthcare in the United States. One such way that it has affected healthcare was in the emphasis placed on patient satisfaction. Under the Affordable Care Act, the quality rating hospitals receive will be based at least in part on patient satisfaction. Because of this, it is now more important than ever that hospitals and health systems ensure that the physicians they recruit have a high emotional intelligence (EQ), which usually translates to more compassionate and empathetic patient care. But how do physician recruiters screen physician candidates for emotional intelligence? Below are four ways recruiters can spot high performing, emotionally intelligent physicians during the interview process.

This can be seen most in the adoption of telemedicine, and it’s use can help ease the stress on physician recruitment in times of physician shortage in the three following ways:

The Importance of Timing in the Physician Recruitment Process

An effective physician recruitment effort owes quite a bit of its success to timing. Finding the right candidate when they’re ready to begin looking for their next opportunity, or having a need become apparent during a peak recruitment season, can both be helpful in filling an opening with the right candidate at the right time.
 
With the vast majority of physicians completing their training on set schedules and then going on to sign employment contracts in set intervals (generally 12, 24, or 36 months), there are times throughout the year where there seem to be a plethora of candidates and others where there are very few. In addition to quantity, the time of year can greatly affect the type of candidate that you will likely have access to, including things such as experience level, availability, and a host of other factors.

What You Need to Know About Independent Practice Associations (IPAs)

Over the past decade, healthcare employers have seen movement of physicians from solo and independent practice models towards the employed practice model. As the risks associated with the traditional “physician as entrepreneur” model have increased, many physicians are choosing to forgo the autonomy of solo or independent practices for the financial security and administrative support offered by large hospitals and health systems seeking to employ an ever growing number of physicians. This trend has only been accelerated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, which has introduced additional red tape and requirements to an already dwindling number of independent practitioners.

Challenges in Physician Recruitment for Faith Based Organizations

For many organizations, finding the right physician to join their team is no easy feat. Between finding a candidate that will be a cultural fit and competing with other organizations, getting the right candidate to join – and stay – with an organization is more difficult than ever.

Being a mission driven health system or hospital with restrictions on the range of procedures and trials some physician specialists can offer, faith based healthcare systems often have an extra step to go through in sourcing and interviewing candidates.

The Biggest Myth About Physician Retention

In an average week, over half of all practicing physicians receive three or more solicitations for new opportunities. Whether for competing practices in the same community or on the other side of the country, the competition for top talent has made it increasingly difficult for many hospitals and health systems to retain their highest performing physicians. In an effort to combat this, many employers have developed physician retention programs aimed at keeping their physicians engaged and fulfilled at work. Despite this, few employers fail to see the crucial role that recruitment plays in the retention of top talent, often thinking that physician recruitment and physician retention are two separate issues. While many practices may believe this, the fact is that the best retention strategy begins in the earliest stages of the recruitment process.

Neurohospitalists: Their Rise and Impact of the Field

Over the past several decades, the field of Neurology has evolved significantly. Along with many other specialties, an increasing amount of Neurological care has been moved to an outpatient setting in an effort to reduce costs. As the demand for Neurological care has grown, many outpatient Neurologists have become stretched thin seeing a high volume of patients in an office setting. Many of these Neurologists have in turn ceased to take emergency call due to increasing demands and diminishing returns. Unfortunately, the decline in outpatient Neurologists willing to take emergency call has not lessened the overwhelming number of patients that continue to present to emergency departments with neurological emergencies. As a solution to this issue, the field of Neurohospitalist medicine has gained popularity.
