Hospitals increasingly employ physicians but struggle with turnover, particularly in the first three years. These staggering six-figure cost of these early departures adds up quickly. Onboarding newly hired physicians, when done well, establishes a stronger connection to your organization’s mission and empowers new physicians to contribute. It’s an opportunity to engage physicians early and ensure that they feel supported in their professional development.
This implementation toolkit equips you with tools to construct a thorough physician onboarding program. Robust checklists will guide you through four onboarding phases—during recruitment, sign-on to start date, the first 90 days, and beyond 90 days. The checklists are supplemented by 13 detailed implementation tools to help you build the onboarding infrastructure that you need to boost early engagement.
