Why doctors leave
According to the ASPR, the most common reason for physician turnover is poor cultural and community fit (72%) followed by relocation to be closer to family (50%). Unfortunately, even the best interview processes won’t be able to identify whether or not a provider will fit with your company culture OR if the provider is fully comfortable with the position’s location.
72% of physicians leave because of cultural issues.
