As a former D3 athlete, I remember throughout high school being taught by coaches, teachers, and others that you are always being recruited. As a high schooler, I did not think much of this because I wanted to be recruited, but one thing I didn't realize was that they meant as a whole, not just for athletic ability. The same goes for physician recruitment. You are not just interviewing for a position based on your medical prowess, but also on you outside of medicine.
Physician recruiters are focused on finding not only the best physician for the opportunity, but also the best physician for the hospital, organization, and team. From the moment that you have your first conversation with the organization, you are being recruited.
So, what are recruiters watching for?
The biggest takeaway from this article for any physician is to remember that there is more to choosing the right candidate than your medical experience. Physician recruitment is more than just 1 phone call or interview, so organizations try to make sure that they are going after the right candidates for the position and the organization.
