Office of Physician/Faculty Recruitment and Retention

As a strategic partner with Temple Health’s leadership, it is the mission of the Department Physician/Faculty Recruitment and Retention (DPFRR) to advance the overall mission of Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) through the recruitment and retention of the nation’s leading physicians. Our core services include comprehensive physician faculty recruitment and retention, faculty relations, compensation and benefits, human resource information management and regulatory compliance. We offer customer-responsive recruitment services to our internal and external clients and, with a focus on retention, utilize physician recruitment and best human resources practices.
