Will There Be a Doctor in the House? Physician Supply, Demand, and Staffing in the Era of COVID-19

September 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT


This educational activity is jointly provided by AXIS Medical Education and the Idaho Hospital Association.

The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly altered the healthcare industry and virtually every other aspect of the economy and of life in the United States. And yet, many of the underlying dynamics fundamental to healthcare remain. One of these is the time-honored fact that healthcare is provided by people, for people. The emergence of COVID-19 has not altered this fact, it has only made it more apparent.

In this presentation, executives with the nation’s leading physician search and consulting firm review the emerging methods that hospitals, medical groups and other healthcare facilities are using to retain and recruit medical staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

An engaging and instructive look at physician recruiting and retention during a unique time.

  • The world before COVID-19
  • Key trends driving physician supply and demand
  • Social determinants of health that are not going away
  • Priority one in a crisis:  retention
  • Survey data:  physician response to COVID-19
  • The “primacy of the workshop”
  • Keeping recruiting momentum going
  • Recruiting in the age of Zoom
  • Physician compensation/recruiting incentives
  • What will change, what will stay the same

CEOs, CFOs, medical directors, physicians, recruiters, medical liaison officers and trustees

Having participated in this educational activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Assess the key trends driving physician supply and demand
  • Summarize the new virtual physician recruiting in the age of “Zoom”
  • Evaluate a review of new survey data:  physician responses to COVID-19 (Idaho physician’s responses vs. National responses)
  • Identify what will change and what will remain the same in the “new normal” in healthcare
  • Review how poverty and COVID-19 are interrelated and how poverty is not going away
