Medical talent management: a model for physician deployment

Medical talent management: a model for physician deployment Purpose – This article aims to provide a focused cost‐effective method for triaging physicians into appropriate non‐clinical roles to benefit both doctors and healthcare organizations. Design/methodology/approach – Reviews a validated career‐planning process and customize it for medical talent management. Findings – A structured career assessment can differentiate between different physician work styles and direct medical talent into best‐fit positions. This allows healthcare organizations to create a more finely tuned career ladder than the familiar “in or out” binary choice. Practical implications – Healthcare organizations can invest in cost‐effective processes for the optimal utilization of their medical talent. Originality/value – Provides a new use for a well‐validated career assessment and planning system. The actual value of this approach should be studied using best‐practices in ROI research. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Leadership in Health Services Emerald Publishing
