Rural Recruitment Family Medicine Rural and Remote R & R Mythbusters INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL GRADUATES ARE THE SOLUTION TO THE DOCTOR SHORTAGE IN UNDERSERVICED AREAS Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement, May, 2013. Focus has to be on retention in rural areas and recruiting students from rural areas into medical school and then recruiting them back. They are more
likely to stay. Retention is the key. Collegial groups are critical to success. Rural FM Training in Canada There are now about 160 rural training sites for FM in CaRMS 85% of medical care in Canada are met in primary care by Family Physicians 50/50 targets There are millions of visits to FPs The Role of the Physician Recruiter
As a physician, this is not about bums in seats It is about fit, collegiality, continuity, and quality of care Working together collaboratively and not taking over or crossing boundaries When possible think to recruit GROUPs and not individuals Remember retention - nurture Family Medicine The Role of the Physician Recruiter Role of remuneration versus other factors
family, collegiality, lifestyle Partners a key focus Succession planning needs to be considered allowing for mentoring and appropriate overlap References Family Medicine Blowing up the Booth References
