The healthcare recruiting space is constantly changing, so it’s important to stay on top of your game. But let’s face it: finding the time to stay informed isn’t easy. So, what if someone read this article aloud to you while you were between meetings, on your lunch hour, or walking the dog? That’s the beauty of podcasts. You can listen to bite-sized chunks of information while you multitask.
We handpicked these 10 podcasts just for you. The topics range from recruiting, to understanding what physicians want, to learning how to enjoy work more. Happy Listening!
