It’s one thing to ask for feedback from a physician you’ve worked with; most doctors have a good story or two to tell and in a recruiting scenario those stories can turn into powerful testimonials that supercharge your physician recruitment game. But are you reaching out to the physicians you’ve worked with for referrals?
Happy New Year! Now that we’re all settling into 2017 we thought we’d take a quick look back at a few things that shaped Doximity and Talent Finder last year and also highlight some of the most read articles by physician recruiters.

It’s no secret that many U.S. doctors are feeling disillusioned. There's nothing greater than helping human beings, but over the last decade the system has shifted profoundly. Doctors say excessive paperwork keeps them from spending enough time with patients, the patient relationship has been undermined, and they want meaning beyond the long arm of insurers and bureaucrats.

Chances are you’re reading this article on a smartphone or tablet. Do you know the average U.S. consumer owns 7.2 Internet-connected devices?

It’s your job to get candidates to sell you on why they’re the right physician for the job.
When you’re working with a candidate who really wants the job (whether it’s for professional or economic reasons), you’re in the buyer’s seat. The candidates will sell themselves to you as the right person for the position. Recruiting is definitely selling, but recruiting expert Lou Adler (CEO of the Adler Group) says the process is far more effective when recruiters play the buyer. You can read the full article by Adler on Inc.com 4 Ways to Get Job Candidates to Sell You (you can also subscribe to the full Adler Group article library here), but we’ve included a quick synopsis of how Adler’s “staying the buyer” process works here.

getting the candidate to sell you,
An unemployed doctor is a rare thing these days. Because the majority of physicians aren’t actively seeking new career opportunities, many physician recruiters automatically weed these physicians out when in fact, you should be working to attract them. Why? The majority of physicians are still curious about relevant opportunities and they’re open to discussing them – which means recruiters need to connect with them in places where they’re already networking and learning.

You know these three words well: recruiting is selling. The product you’re selling is your healthcare facility. Physician candidates are your sales leads. And since you’re selling a position at your facility, it’s imperative to know everything possible about it. But that goes well beyond patient volume – you also need to sell the community.

The way physicians are paid is an ongoing discussion in healthcare reform. But if you think changing physician compensation models is simply about how much money doctors are paid, think again. New compensation models are about changing how doctors practice and how they allocate their resources.

The more a physician recruiter knows about a candidate, the more value you add to the recruitment and hiring process. That's why getting to know the candidate – beyond just their skills and qualifications – and thoroughly understanding what they’re looking for is critical. But all that sleuthing and sourcing doesn’t mean much if you can’t land the candidate. We constantly speak with innovators in physician recruitment to learn about current trends and to determine what’s helping their recruitment success. Here are some key questions physician recruiters are asking candidates that you should be asking, too.
