Learn ‘When to Do What in Your Job Search’—from writing your CV to negotiating your contract—at this free event for physicians.
New Orleans, January 7, 2015 — What are the best practices for writing a physician CV? How should physicians request references? When are interviews scheduled, how can physicians best prepare, and how should physicians analyze employment opportunities?
Physician Career Advancement Workshop
Both training and practicing physicians who are looking for new opportunities can learn the answers to these questions and more at the PracticeLink Physician Career Advancement Workshop and Job Fair on Tuesday, January 20. The drop-in Job Fair is from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the New Orleans Marriott at 555 Canal St. The Workshop begins at 6:30.
At the free Career Advancement Workshop, residents and fellows will learn the details of the job-search timeline they should follow as they transition from training to practice.
This Workshop, which features a panel of four in-house physician recruiters to answer any job-search questions, covers:
- Creating a physician CV
- Interview preparation
- Accepting and evaluating offers
- Contract negotiation and tips on seeking legal help
- And more
Attendees are encouraged to meet with in-house physician recruiters at the event. These recruiters are hiring physicians for facilities nationwide.
The goal of the event is both to provide the job-search education physicians need and to connect healthcare facilities with the providers they need.
According to the Association of Staff Physician Recruiters, physician openings take an average of 204 days to fill. Because physicians are the primary revenue drivers for healthcare organizations, each physician vacancy represents hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue. Healthcare organizations are trying to stay on top of the worsening physician shortage by partnering with PracticeLink.
“In-house physician recruiters play a critical role in health care. Without recruiters, organizations can’t get the providers they need, and without providers, patients can’t be seen,” said Ken Allman, CEO of PracticeLink.
