Turnover rateWhen adding a physician to practice, think strategically

September 17, 0001

In my experience, the failure rate (turnover in the first 2 years) ofnew physician recruits to practices is high. The reason: employers do notselect from a broad enough universe. Gathering a large crop of candidatestogether implies a major safari that lots of practices just don't have theenergy or budget to mount, so they take the first or second doctor who happensto come along. Small wonder it doesn't work out.
