8 FALL 2017 KEN ALLMAN, MBA, CMSR, FMSD Founder & CEO · president's note DEAR PHYSICIAN, Your entire job search comes down to being able to answer "yes" to only two questions. All the conversations, all the applications, and all the interviews you attend are geared toward finding the answers to these: • Can you work there? • Can you live there? Those questions are good indicators of whether you'll be happy in your new workplace and community. Those questions help you understand the amount of call you'll take, the amount of CM e paid for, or the amount of compensation you'll earn. They help you evaluate how the negotiation process was handled, or your health care attorney's point of view. In-house physician recruiters, too, are trying to evaluate your answers to those questions as they usher you through the hiring process at their organizations. Like you, recruiters are searching for a long-term relationship — a physician who will put down roots and positively advance their workplace and community. It's easy to get caught up in the urgent matters, the important discussions about your employment agreement and your compensation package. But remember to look further ahead. Once the contract is signed and your direct deposit is set up, you'll be on to your next phase, one that lasts much longer: your day-to-day new practice. There's another reason to keep those two questions at the forefront. If the answer to both is yes, then the conversations about contracts and compensation become easier. You'll be more willing to give and take, you'll enter negotiations with a clearer mind, and you'll focus on establishing a partnership for the future. Recruiters at more than 5,000 communities use PracticeLink to post their jobs and recruit physicians and advanced practice providers like you to their organizations.
