Generation gaps on the medical staff may affect physician recruitment
Each generation brings with it a different work ethic, mode of communication, and definitions of professionalism and loyalty. If you’re unaware of these generational differences or don’t accept that they are sitting on your doorstep, they could stymie your recruitment efforts.
Differences include learning, teaching, and communication style, approach to clinical schedules, concept of work-life balance, academic and personal motivation, level of control of the work experience, and effective productivity incentives, according to “The Impact of New-Generation Physicians on the Function of Academic Anesthesiology Departments,” which appeared in the December 2007 Current Opinion in Anesthesiology.
The first thing you need to know about generational and, therefore, cultural differences between older and younger physicians is that you can’t change them.
