"While physician recruitment is a challenge for all health care facilities these days, rural facilities must deal with some unique pressures," says Mulloy. "They must be realistic and face these pressures head-on in a well-designed primary care recruitment plan that is focused on meeting the candidate's financial and quality of life needs as well as the opportunity for the physician to succeed and sustain his or her success. For residents and practicing physicians alike, location is often more important than salary. The overall compensation package is generally a strong second followed by other quality of life and quality of career considerations. We suggest that every rural facility conduct an organizational assessment that will provide insight into the organization's readiness to launch a successful recruitment initiative. Then, and only then, can the organization design a well-conceived plan that focuses on each component of the targeted model."
Mulloy will remind attendees that a mobile strategy is a must-have component for their overall physician recruitment plan. "Staying in front of potential candidates with information that is available when and where they want it can be the difference between a successful recruit and a missed opportunity."
