On The Road to Recovery: Confronting Physician Burnout, Recruitment and Retention
Wednesday, December 6, 2023 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
While there have been many gains in the healthcare industry returning to pre-pandemic times, challenges faced by the physician workforce and continued staffing shortages remain just as intense. As burnout and stress continue to climb, so do the rates of physician turnover and early retirements.
The great challenge for administrators is to develop sustainable physician staffing strategies that simultaneously meet community demand for care and organizational revenue targets. Yet, recent research on the topics of physician burnout, job satisfaction, and career plans uncovers ongoing issues that threaten this.
Additionally, despite rising rates of turnover and the intensifying need for talent, many healthcare organizations haven’t yet formalized a physician retention plan, nor have they outlined a succession and recruitment plan that addresses the inevitable wave of vacancies coming from a rising number of physician retirements.
During this session, we’ll dive into recent survey findings, outline actionable steps that participants can implement to improve their physician recruitment and retention strategies, and discuss why it’s critical to anticipate and address future staffing needs earlier to overcome the downside of lengthy vacancies.
