Speaker: Craig Fowler, Vice President of Training, Recruiting and Public Relations, Pinnacle Health Group
One of the most notable trends impacting physicians and those that help to recruit physicians, is the movement toward employment arrangements and away from income guarantees and private practice settings. To ensure alignment, healthcare executives and administrators must integrate effective strategies for employing and retaining physicians. This includes new contract considerations such as performance and quality based bonuses and flexible work schedules. The presentation will focus on how healthcare providers can optimize a physician employment structure that will suit their alignment goals and thus help them maximize productivity and market share.
During this educational program, participants will learn:
- How facilities can integrate effective strategies for employing and retaining physicians
- How healthcare providers can optimize physician employment structures to help maximize productivity and market share
- How facilities can implement contract models that encourage retention
- New contract considerations, such as – performance based incentives, quality based incentives and flexible work schedules

Candidates of all types will be in demand. Some recruiters may be pursuing International Medical Graduates/IMGs for the first time or with very little experience in this area. It is important to have a clear understanding of the immigration laws and programs governing the recruitment, employment and retention of these candidates.
