Our guests describe their firsthand experiences with job searching in IR and Mohs surgery. Completing fellowship programs at different times and moving to different cities made it difficult to negotiate hiring contracts. Dr. Kasie Adkins recounts her frustration with the high cost of third party recruiters and a lack of transparency about pay and job structure during the application process. She also highlights the need to level the playing field for skilled physicians who are underrepresented in certain specialties.
To learn more about pain points in hiring and retention of healthcare professionals, the doctors reached out to their hospital administrators and colleagues. They compiled this market research into an online web application that matches candidates to positions. STAT Careers allows candidates to filter positions based on factors such as skill set, call schedule, and location, free of charge. Each employer can build a custom template for each position that lists specific characteristics and responsibilities.
The founders outline their growth trajectory, from building their initial algorithm, to hiring full time employees, to seeking international opportunities. Currently, they are developing ways to better match applicants to positions based on culture fit. We close the episode by discussing the importance of learning from retention rates and remaining transparent to optimize team function.
