Why hospitals should look for docs with social skills
Physicians' social skills often tie in directly to their job performances, according to a piece in Forbes. And rudeness will no longer cut it in the workplace. "[R]egardless of doctors' technical competence, their ability to deal with patients and influence their behavior will depend more on their personality and attitude than what they learned in medical school," writes Forbes contributor Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic. Despite this, he writes, the profession has historically rewarded competitiveness and academic knowledge over personal interactions.
