Overview: In order to track success, innovations, and areas for improvement, every health center should have a thorough recruitment strategy. While the idea of a “recruitment plan” may seem too rigid or hard to keep up with, a defined strategic structure can actually allow you the flexibility to safely try new processes, gather data on your efforts, and maximize your recruitment investments. Join this webinar to walk through a free Retention & Recruitment Plan Template, which provides information, ideas, and developed tables for you to fill in and make your own. Participants will hear about the benefits of developing a recruitment strategy, specific processes to consider, and how to get started.
Cost: This event is FREE for staff of health centers (Health Center Program Grantees and FQHC Look-Alikes) and Primary Care Associations (PCAs). Continuing education credit is not available for this event.
