JASPR Feature: Integrating Physician Recruitment and Physician Relations

Integrating Physician Recruitment and Physician Relations By Allison McCarthy, Principal, Barlow/McCarthy, Plymouth, MA

Is it time to develop a physician mentor program as part of your retention initiatives? Successful mentoring programs require proper understanding, planning, implementation, and evaluation. This webinar will address how to clearly define the goals of a physician mentor program and provide you with recommendations on what to do (and not do) in order to develop a successful program. Our speakers will address how to anticipate and overcome obstacles that could cause the program to fail such as lack of participation, no leadership involvement, unrealistic expectations, etc. Case studies will be presented to provide you with concrete ideas and examples to give you a jump start on developing your own physician mentor program.
