New program fosters stronger relationships with corporate supporters
The Association of Staff Physician Recruiters (ASPR), the leading authority on physician recruitment, onboarding, and retention, is pleased to announce its five strategic corporate partners for three-year terms beginning in 2017. The partnership initiative is a new program by which ASPR seeks to build stronger relationships with corporate support to grow and advance the profession.
“This is an exciting time for ASPR and our first class of strategic corporate partners as we work together to grow the profession and acknowledge the important role they play in that mission,” said ASPR executive director Carey Goryl, MSW, CAE. “We are delighted to welcome this quintet and work with them over the next three years in what we are confident will be a mutually-beneficial partnership.”
The corporate partners are:
