Physician Recruitment and Retention.
This book lists every aspect of the planning process and the needed resources. It very adequately discusses the decision regarding using in-house or outside recruitment agencies. More important, it skillfully outlines the recruiting process, including identification and screening of candidates, on-site interviewing, and negotiating. Physician retention endeavors are resourcefully and cleverly delineated. Bibliographies for more in-depth study of issues are included with most chapters. The chapter on legal issues is of particular interest, especially to hospitals. Invaluable check-off lists of all procedural plans are provided.
Physician groups, hospitals and all organizations seeking to recruit physicians will benefit from this very informative, yet concise book. As a physician who has participated in recruitment for more than 30 years, I recommend this unique resource for every member of the recruiting team. It's the best I've seen.
