OjO at AAO Conversation with the Experts Ophthalmology Recruitment Ophthalmology jobs Online at the American Academy of Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology practices...If you're having a tough time finding a great ophthalmologist for your practice opportunity or partnership position you're not alone.  

OjO's own, Drew Caldwell, will be at several AAO "Conversations with the Experts" for one on one conversations about physician recruitment in the eye world.

"The most important thing you can do as a recruiting practice is to prove to young job-seeking ophthalmologists that you have a patients over profits mentality, that you are guided by core values and ethics, that you have a collaborative team, and that you have a legitimate need for help.  Certainly there are a lot of other important factors that drive candidates to pick one position over another, but these are a few of the key points to discuss with your doctor candidates."  Practices who face the biggest hurdles in the hiring process include solo and two doctor practices in less popular locations, particularly those in rural areas more than 90 minutes from a major airport or sizable community. Additional factors that influence career decisions are:  doctor and staff turnover, available mentoring, compensation and bonuses, ASC ownership, overhead, option for partnership and more.

Meet with Drew to talk about creative and inexpensive ways to market your job opportunity and find MD talent.
