This exciting workshop will challenge you to rethink your approach to workforce recruitment and retention.

  • Benjamin Anderson, CEO of a Critical Access Hospital in western Kansas, will share his story on how he has successfully recruited more than 15 mission-minded family practice physicians to a diverse and underserved region in a short period of time. He will describe the development of the mission-minded recruitment and retention model while highlighting the innovative approaches required to achieve and sustain a healthy medical staff.

  • A panel of family practice faculty and residents will discuss what they are looking for in practice opportunities and share feedback about the mission-minded recruitment model.

  • Additional presentations and discussions will include the importance of workplace culture, aligning the motivations of medical providers with the values of an organization, and community readiness and collaboration.
