Nearly half of all new physicians switch jobs in their first five years, and 73% of doctors in general are “passive” job seekers (they aren’t looking but are open to new opportunities) – so how do you become the physician recruiter emergency medicine candidates engage with?

8 Ways to Attract Candidates to Your Rural Positions

Posted by Doximity TF Team

According to the National Institute of Health, about 1 of every 5 U.S. citizens live in rural locations, while only 1 of every 10 American physicians reside in rural areas — meaning that the physician shortage is roughly twice as pronounced in rural America.

If you’ve ever tried recruiting a physician for a rural area, this statistic may not surprise you. It can be extremely difficult to entice a candidate to move away from the comfort of their city or suburban lifestyle and into the countryside. With that in mind, it’s no wonder that as many as 77% of our nation’s rural counties are experiencing shortages of primary care physicians.

We’ve asked our expert team of Client Success Managers here at Doximity Talent Finder for some of their tips around how to excite candidates about rural positions.

Posted by Doximity TF Team

This article was originally published in Doximity Op-Med, a collection of healthcare opinion journals from Doximity members. 

The 2018 Doximity Physician Compensation Survey just landed and my head is swirling with thoughts. There are so many interesting trends to highlight: the gender pay gap; the pay gap between Primary Care and subspecialists; the huge gap between the proceduralists and the generalists; and the relatively low pay for all pediatric doctors. However, I’d like to focus on the narrowing pay gap for women in medicine, which for me, offered a glimmer of hope.

Why laughter is important for physician candidates (and their recruiters)

Posted by Doximity TF Team

Humor has the power to heal at every level, yet if you ask most physicians or recruiters to think of one word to describe a hospital they probably won’t say, “humorous.” Laughter is a powerful antidote for pain, stress, and even conflict, though. In fact, nothing works faster at bringing balance to your mind and body than laughter.

Why identifying soft skills can help recruiters separate a good physician candidate from a great one.

Posted by Doximity TF Team

Good communication is a “soft skill” that’s essential for building great relationships.
