With 13 of the 20 physicians in his practice hired within the last 12 years, Dr. Baraf and his team have interviewed physicians who have come to the practice from different avenues. These avenues include:
- Word of mouth;
- Advertising using the ACR’s CareerConnection service;
- Engagement with trainees at lectures on finding a private practice;
- Attending fellows-in-training (FIT) programs at scientific meetings; and
- Direct contact with fellowship program directors.
“The challenge is the numbers game,” he says. “A practice looking to hire needs to provide an attractive opportunity to be successful.”
