Redefining Recruitment to Retention

AAPPR Stay Interviews Guide

The high cost of turnover in health care and the ever-present provider shortage validates the importance of strengthening physician and provider retention strategies in every organization. A study by the University of Virginia Health System determined that physicians were more likely to leave their positions if they felt they were spending too much time in a particular area of their jobs. Stay interviews can be one way to review the right balance of patient care, administration, research, and teaching to make or break a physician/provider’s desire to stay with a specific organization.
