    "Bridging the Gap Between Leaders and Physicians"   

    With more than 20 years of experience of recruiting and retaining physicians and working closely with them daily, Kyle will share some practical things we all should know that will help you to better recruit, retain and have a mutually beneficial relationship with your physicians. This session will look at our own behaviors that can tend to get in the way of a healthy relationship with our physicians and very well may interrupt the most important element which is mutual trust.  We’ll also discuss how physicians are wired to better understand their pure intentions and their communication tendencies and desires.
