Why Should You Become a FASPR?

The ASPR Fellowship Program was designed by and customized for in-house physician recruitment professionals. Encompassing knowledge and skills from many varied disciplines (including medical practice management, human resources, law, marketing, and business), the program is taught by experienced experts in the field of physician recruitment and provides you with resources, best practices, and leading physician recruiting specific training.

Why should you consider becoming certified as a Fellow of the Association of Staff Physician Recruiters (FASPR)? Certification as a FASPR demonstrates to your employer and colleagues that you have mastered critical knowledge and skills from across a broad spectrum of topics related to physician recruitment. Becoming a FASPR shows a commitment to continuing education and excellence in the discipline of physician recruitment.

In addition to the prestige that holding a FASPR certification brings, it might also help you obtain a higher salary. The 2010 ASPR In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Survey indicated that physician recruitment professionals that held a FASPR certification received approximately 33% higher compensation compared to their counterparts that did not achieve any Fellowship designation.

The ASPR Fellowship Program is the most comprehensive authoritative resource for individuals seeking to develop and test their skills and knowledge in the physician recruiting profession. We encourage you to take all three Fellowship modules and exams to become certified as a FASPR! Learn more about becoming a Fellow of ASPR.

Increasingly, recruiters are being asked to take on more and more duties, including managing on-boarding, retention, and physician relations.  Certainly, successful physician relations begins with a quality recruit.  In the reverse, physician relations activities can help to identify and establish solid recruitment priorities.  Learn workable approaches for integrating these two critically important functions for hospitals, health systems and physician groups.  This will include tips and techniques for identifying those areas that can create win/win opportunities in both areas.  Communication recommendations will also be provided so as to maximize internal recognition of the benefits provided by these efforts.

ASPR Webinar Series – July Topic: ACOs: Taking an Organizational Approach that Makes Sense

Register today for this free webinar offered on July 27 at 1:00 CDT.
Speakers: Phil Dalton, President, and Eric Themm, Principal, MDS Consulting

As decisions about the particulars of the health care reform bill continue to forge their way through the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, new healthcare concepts, strategies and business models continue to arise. One such emerging concept is the Accountable Care Organization (“ACO”). The ACO is defined as an organization of health care providers that agrees to be accountable for the quality, cost, and the overall care of Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in the traditional fee-for-service program. ACO’s could transform the delivery and financial components of healthcare. The Webinar will examine the aspects of ACO development, challenges, strategies and the efforts nationally to better manage a patient population’s quality of health end expenses.
