Attracting new talent for your pediatric practice means new opportunities to expand your office and increase patient satisfaction. Check out these tips from our CEO, Susanne Madden, and PCC on how to attract top healthcare candidates.
"What is it that you're trying to build? What are you trying to create? Ask the candidate how their experience and their personality and their education fits with what it is that you're trying to do.
