Need help hiring new staff?

From the May ACP Observer, copyright 2004 by the American College of Physicians.

When you're interviewing a candidate for a position, you want to find out if the person will be a good fit—especially if you have a small practice. What questions can you ask, and which should you steer clear of?

Find out online this month on ACP's Small Practice Management Discussion Group with the featured topic, "Hiring staff: Getting the most out of an interview without getting in trouble," moderated by Guy Hudson, the College's Director of Human Resources.

"Let the candidate do the talking," Mr. Hudson said. "There is a tendency to 'help' the candidate through the interview, when you want to be listening instead." With the newsgroup, he plans to discuss those questions you can—and cannot—ask.

Targeted to members in practices with between one and five physicians, the Small Practice Newsgroup features a new topic each month, allowing participants to exchange information about what works in the small-practice setting.
