How a German hospital used Tik Tok for recruiting
Skeleton dances, karaoke with a stethoscope, and the resurrection of rubber chickens are what doctors do when no one is looking (at least that’s what ordinary people think). Well, the guessing game is over – now they’re doing it in plain sight!
For some practitioners at the Klinikum Dortmund, a municipal hospital in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan area in western Germany, this activity has become part of their official work. On the hospital’s TikTok account, doctors clutch their disinfectant bottles to cult ’80s electronic music and dance to country-inspired tracks.
In Germany, it is difficult to find hospital staff due to a shortage of skilled labor and a lot of competition. In 2019, about 20,000 vacancies remained unfilled in German hospitals. And the clinics entered into a bidding war.
The main audience is not patients, but other medical professionals and hospital staff. “We engage all of our interns through social media,” says the clinic’s head of communications. And the method really works!
The division of the German TikTok does not lag behind the international part. Millions of subscribers, almost billions of likes and thousands of comments – the Germans definitely fell in love with this social network!
