The final phase of the recruitment effort is to make sure that the candidate fulfills the needs of the group and to try to make as sure as possible that the candidate would be happy in the new position. This means there must be a very candid exchange of information regarding the goals and expectations of the group and the individual, and how the group’s expectations will be measured. It also means making sure that there is a good fit between the culture of the group and the desires of the candidate. Furthermore, a substantial effort should be made to make sure the candidate (and his family) will be happy in the practice location.
