Nussbaum's team recruits across a wide spectrum of specialties, including cancer therapy and medical and surgical oncology; bariatric surgery; pulmonology and certain subspecialties in ophthalmology, such as retinal surgery and neural ophthalmology; cardiothoracic surgery and cardiology; and gastroenterology. Augusta University Medical Center also operates the Children's Hospital of Georgia, and Nussbaum says he recruits candidates for nearly all pediatric specialties. When Nussbaum and his recruitment team talk to physicians interested in joining their organization, they make sure to mention the area's warm weather and plethora of activities, including golf.

"A lot of the residents sometimes go out of town during the Masters and make some extra money." Though some residents choose that route, Farr is one Augusta resident sure to not miss a golf event. "I often say that you can find [me] at one of four places," says Farr. "I'm at church, I'm at the hospital, I'm with my family, or I'm on the golf course. That is a very focused and intentional way that I live my life." ● Win!
