Physician Recruitment Interviewing Best Practices

Physician recruitment interview techniques can range from casual conversations lasting a few minutes to formal meetings - sometimes even as a group.

Most of us in physician recruitment today have had no formalized interview skills training.  But we have been personally interviewed enough to know what a bad interview feels like – and don’t want to subject anyone else to the same experience.  Or we just lack confidence in conducting interviews with these specific professionals – especially because we are trying to sell them at the same time.    

This tutorial is designed for anyone that interviews physicians.  The session provides examples of interview types including sample questions.  A complimentary workbook is also provided to reinforce your video learning.
