Having an Attitude of Gratitude: Why it has a Place in Healthcare & Recruitment

Posted by Doximity TF Team

It’s that time of year when we all consider what we’re thankful for (in addition to stuffing and pumpkin pie). Did you know that gratitude can significantly increase your happiness and your health? That’s right, practicing gratitude can help you get more sleep and boost your immunity. According to Amit Sood, MD, who authored a Handbook for Happiness for Mayo Clinic, practicing gratitude can also decrease the risk of disease. 

If counting our blessings each day is great for us personally, it’s bound to be a helpful tactic for healthcare recruiters and organizations, too, right? Quint Studer, a highly regarded expert in operational excellence, believes it is.

The good news is that nearly 50,000 new healthcare jobs have been added since January 2021. The bad news? The U.S. will need more than 500,000 jobs to get back to pre-pandemic levels (per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). While demand for physicians was increasing year-over-year for three years leading into 2020 (per Doximity) – and despite the increased demand for healthcare workers overall – the pipeline of doctors training for many of these roles has slowed to a trickle (per Stat).

10 Traits Recruiters Should Look For In Candidates (That Have Nothing To Do With Medicine)

Posted by Doximity TF Team

There’s no single ingredient or skill that makes a great physician. Medical skills and qualifications are important when you’re looking for suitable candidates for an opportunity; however, some of the most important personal traits and qualities can’t be found on a CV.
