Finding Dr. Right.Med Group Manage. 1986 Nov-Dec; 33(6):38-9, 42.MG

Once the decision has been made to initiate the recruiting process, the qualities in a new physician that will best enhance the group's ability to deliver quality care must be determined. The next step is a targeted recruiting effort. The relative importance of lay professional and personal factors in a candidate and methods of identifying candidates are also discussed in this second in a series on physician retirement.
