2012 Trustee Webinar Series: How to Recruit Physicians to Your Hospital

Learn specific strategies to successfully recruit the medical staff your hospital needs

Understand how to remove the barriers hospitals face recruiting the physicians they need to increase or replace patient volume. Learn proven recruitment strategies to increase successful recruitment.

Hospital trustees bear the burden to meet their hospitals’ and communities’ need for physician providers in an industry with growing recruitment challenges. Successful recruitment requires overcoming a shrinking and changing pool of candidates, physician practice changes, and learning proven recruitment strategies for medical staff development.

Join us for the latest installment in QHR’s Trustee webinar series, to understand the "new physician.” The Webinar will illustrate key expectations of today’s physician candidates and describe the increasingly important role of mid-levels in overall recruitment success. The session will also provide specific guidance to make site visits and offers generate successful outcomes.
