Dear Recruiters: Reach, Price, Quality! (Synonyms for what U want!)

Welcome to Spring 2013!

This is a season of opposites and controversy, in the physician recruitment market place.

1)  A study is being done to determine the value of robotic surgery for hysterectomies over other minimally invasive surgery. (WSJ 2/20/13) Now we need fewer surgeons?

2)  Should women over 40 40 get annual mammogram’s?
Yes – Catching cancer early improves the odds of beating it
No – The benefits are small, and the costs can be great.
How many hospitals can carry these possible expenses?

3)  Should medical residents be required to work shorter shifts?
Yes – Long shifts are harmful to both patients and doctors.
No – More work hours mean more learning opportunities.
Could they add more doctors to their programs, to ease this burden?

4) Should states opt out of the health law’s Medicaid expansion?
Yes – It represents bad welfare – and health policy
No – It offers cost efficient coverage for the most needy.
Can we create another hospital care system?

5) Should healthy people have their genomes sequenced at this time?
Yes – For patients, knowledge can be a powerful tool.
No – The information, for now,  is too difficult to understand. (WSJ 2/19/13)
Can we have accurate information available, for all concerned?

The above questions and answers are ones that new grads and experienced professionals will want to ask the recruiters, as they sign onto facilities that match their values, goals and professionalism.

We are lucky to have all the distribution emails for the groups offering Spring 2013 CME from the last 10 years; thus, keeping our distribution high.

The Swan Report

The Very Latest Trends Report – March 12, 2012

A Swan’s growth requires movement into new bodies. Similarly, professionals grow into their new positions. Thus, we have called these trends The Swan Report. Hopefully, The Swan Report will provide assistance during these changes.

From the staff at Selikoff Enterprises


Greatest concern are the April 1st proposed Medicaid restructuring. There are 500 proposed diagnosis that Washington states’ Medicaid will not reimburse for treatment – yet, physicians are legally responsible to treat. Instead the state will pay a screening fee of approximately $50.00 if the patient is a part of a private pay version of Medicaid, which at this point in time has about 60% of the patient population. The purpose is to avoid the abuse to Emergency Rooms in Washington state hospitals.

This will result in unpaid work due to the ethical, moral and liability dilemmas. The goal is to direct the population to lower cost options, like Urgent Care Clinics. Emergency Room physician groups, Medical and Hospital associations are lobbying against this initiative. Tennessee and Iowa are launching different but similar plans. All are watching to see how it will occur or not occur in the other 47 states.
