Meet: Brad Strader, executive director of the Buena Vista Regional Healthcare Foundation

Employer: Buena Vista Regional Medical Center, Storm Lake, Iowa

Why did you choose to become a physician recruiter? My work with the Foundation is highly involved in developing relationships with those that would consider financially supporting our organization. The process for recruitment is no different in that you search for prospects, develop relationships and then "make the ask." I was asked to be a part of developing connections that could get us ahead of the curve in recruitment - a strategy that, so far, is working fairly well.

What’s your favorite part of your role? Getting to meet "the best and the brightest" and the variety this aspect of my work offers.

What’s your best piece of advice for physicians in their job search? In a rural setting, get to know the people you will work with and those in the community. They certainly want to get to know you!

What can physicians look forward to in your community? You can build life-long professional relationships and friendships.
