Best Practices for Onboarding Physicians
Physicians Practice (11/26/20) Zhu, Colin
The article discusses best practices for onboarding new locum tenens physicians. There are four key players in making onboarding the best it can be: the employer, their recruiter or HR person, the physician's recruiter (if there is one), and the physician themselves. It's critical that these parties communicate effectively. For the employer, the most important detail to establish is the need for their practice. Next, employers must be able to share how many patients or shifts the physician needs to cover, how much support they're going to get, and what other resources they may require to do the job efficiently while they are there. For the client representatives and the physician's recruiter, they need to establish all of the above but also housing needs, travel/relocation needs, and vehicle needs for the physician. For the physician, it's best to have an interview with both the office/practice manager and the medical director of the facility.
