Ending the week on a positive note, this week we celebrated National Physicians Week. Becoming a physician and working as a physician is not easy. Physicians are individuals who have signed up to serve and help others and deal with heavy workloads bringing on stress personally and professionally. We are grateful for the service that all physicians provide and their hard work.
Here at KTE, we thank all the Physicians that we work with as clients and as candidates. We take this opportunity to recognize how important our jobs as recruiters is to learn how to communicate with Physicians and match them to their next professional opportunity, helping them every step of the way.
Making it through medical school is essential, however, other skills and traits are just as necessary. And, in honor of Physicians week, we will share with you the 7 qualities that make a great doctor.
7 Traits Of A Great Doctor
Let’s face it, patients don’t care if their doctor were on the top of their class. All they care about is how they are being treated. And, they care that they are being heard. Caring for the patient goes a long way.
Being organized and well prepared are skills that help Doctors succeed in their practice. We were all taught at an early age to practice organizational skills to be successful. Doctors can’t succeed in medicine if they are not vigilant to details.
The best doctors understand that they do not work alone, but rather in a team. Being able to work well with others is imperative.
Great Bedside Manner
What separates the Good Doctor from the Great Doctor is their Bedside Manner. When a Physician is a great listener and personable, they create a pleasant environment when dealing with patients.
Something as simple as getting a medicine approved or secure an appointment with a specialist. The Doctor that’s willing to go that extra mile for the patient is considered to be a great Doctor.
The doctor that doesn’t interrupt and listens carefully and are not rushed is considered a good communicator. Being a good communicator isn’t just being friendly with patients, it’s vital for doctors to understand concerns and explain a diagnosis.
A good Doctor is always willing to be interested to work through diagnosis to figure things out. A great Doctor works through problems, and uncover the answers. Rather than rushing to a diagnosis too quickly.
In summary, Physicians week is a time to express our thanks for their hard work and efforts. If you need recruiting assistance, contact us today. You can reach us at 904-940-5415 or ktemedicaljobs.com.
