Just the other day, one of our team members came across a TikTok where a nurse and a doctor compare their work-life and salaries. In that video, the doctor spent more years in education and spent more hours working, yet his pay was drastically low compared to the nurse.

Although the pandemic put this profession on the frontline, the industry faces a drastic shortage of staffing, a lack of appropriate opportunities, and, most importantly, fair compensation. 

The looming physician shortage has been a topic of discussion for quite a few years now. As per an AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges) report, people in the silver economy will account for 43 percent of the demand for primary care by 2034.

Another problem that healthcare employers face is the high turnover rate. With the average cost of hiring a physician (primary care) being $241,000 and the average turnover rate being 7 percent, the organizations continue to be plagued with skill gaps.

And the dissatisfaction is the same on the employee’s end. With the pandemic subjecting more vulnerabilities to the already struggling healthcare system, the doctors now become more burnt out and switch jobs. 

So, what’s the solution? It would be fair to understand that this problem is not resulting from a singular crack. It will take a multi-pronged approach, in the long run, to make the system more fair and satisfactory.

On the other hand, physician recruitment companies can fulfill your immediate requirements while being a great resource to turn to for getting your recruitment process right. Regardless of who you are, an employer or a practitioner, it proves beneficial for both ends.

Here’s how:

WEEDING OUT UNQUALIFIED CANDIDATES

Thorough screening is a comprehensive process and can be very time-consuming. It includes reviewing applications, conducting interviews, and carefully sifting through all candidates. Physician recruitment companies get an employer through half of the recruiting process by getting the hard part done. They give you access to only the talent of your concern.

INCREASING STAFF DURING BUSY PERIODS

Dental hiring agencies and physician recruitment companies prove to be a great platform to compensate during busy periods. Whether you are an employer looking for short-term contracts or an employee looking for opportunities in your after-hours or carve an independent practitioner career path, recruitment agencies bring you opportunities while saving your time and efforts.

BUILDING PROFESSIONAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL SKILLS

These platforms are a great way for employers and employees to step out of their usual circle of professionals. It allows professionals to tap into a fresh pool of talent and opportunities that might not be accessible to them. This way, one can form sustainable relationships and get real-world updates and industry practices.  

MORE FLEXIBILITY

Depending upon your choice of physician recruitment agencies, a professional gets access to flexibility in assignments. An individual gets the opportunity to income diversification while increasing productivity for the organization.

Membership with dental hiring agencies and physician recruitment companies offers many perks. However, it's essential to find the right partner for your professional journey as some may end up being nothing but annoying salespeople who have no knowledge of the industry and are just trying to sell aggressively.
