The choosing of a candidate is based on the premise that the future behavior of this new employee will be the one the clinic needs and is searching for. In this case, we are talking about predicting the future, and this is a task of great dimension that requires high levels of technical preparation, to be accomplished. The employee of a clinic is the connecting point between the client and the doctor. Through this person occurs great part of the communication process between the doctor and the patient, especially in the cases of scheduling of consultations, exams, and procedures.
