We often hear members of our medical staff comment: “I just don’t get the Millennial doctors.”
But guess what? It’s absolutely vital to “get” them – meaning both to understand them and to recruit them into our practices. Even more importantly: we must keep them.
Our guest today, Amelie Karam, is a national expert, author, speaker and consultant on the Millennial workforce. She recently conducted a survey of Millennial physicians with a goal of better understanding how to attract and retain this specific age group in healthcare organizations today. Amelie outlines their top priorities:
- To be part of a strong community.
- To have a strong work-life balance.
- To be treated as an individual.
