Onboarding and Retention (OAR) Update
By Kate Rader, OAR President and Manager, Recruitment Coordination Services, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX
The ASPR Onboarding and Retention (OAR) Chapter is excited to report a keen interest exists in onboarding and retention with well over 90 ASPR members officially joining the chapter since its formal inception in January! We are moving at a quick pace in formulating current reference tools and sources for the tasks and duties associated with onboarding and retaining the physicians we work so hard to hire for our organizations.
OAR’s monthly calls include a business meeting and the opportunity to discuss topics of interest while serving as an educational forum. OAR’s Education Committee has planned calls for the next few months to include topics of interest based on membership input to include: Justification for an Onboarding program, Lean Programs and Processes and Tools for Onboarding.
As no two recruitments are the same, we are finding no two onboarding and retention programs are the same. Despite the differences, many similarities exist and OAR strives to be the go-to resource for best practices whether you are in an academic setting, group practice or large hospital system. Whether you are just beginning to establish an onboarding program or have one in place, we welcome you to join us.
