Rural Recruitment Reimagined workshop in Bismarck April 16

What if the health needs of our most vulnerable populations, in our most remote areas, were able to drive successful recruitment, rather than create barriers to care? How does the millennial generation of health providers exhibit the characteristics that promote workforce growth and stability?

Find out at the Rural Recruitment Reimagined workshop, to be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 16, at the CHI St. Alexius Boniface Auditorium (East Patient Entrance, 310 North 10th St.) in Bismarck, N.D.*

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

At the workshop, Benjamin Anderson, former CEO of a Critical Access Hospital in western Kansas, will share his story on how he successfully recruited more than 15 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 or an organization, and community readiness and collaboration.
