Earlier this year, the ASPR Board of Directors announced a transition in timing of Board of Director terms. Beginning with the 2012 Board, the Board terms will begin at the conclusion of the Business Meeting at the ASPR Annual Conference (typically mid-August). A formal “Call for Nominations” for Board members will now take place in May and elections will be held in June rather than in the fall as we have done historically.
The Board positions that will be up for election for 2012 are Secretary and two Member at Large positions. The term will be from August 2012 through August 2014. In order to be eligible for a Board position, you must be an ASPR Active member in good standing for a minimum of one year prior to the election and current active member on at least one ASPR Committee for at least one year. Board Members must be willing and able to travel (expenses reimbursed) to leadership meetings, the Annual Conference, attend monthly Board Meetings via conference call, and act as a liaison to a committee.If you have questions regarding the upcoming Board positions or the election process, please contact Jennifer Metivier, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Scott Manning, President, at email@example.com.
This week’s “Question of the Week” is:
Does your local Hospitalist program utilize advanced practice providers?
Thank you to all of you who participated in last week’s “Question of the Week”. We had 78 respondents (hoping for many more this week!) and the results of the survey were:
How are the inpatients cared for in your local hospital?
Did you ever wonder who develops our Annual Conference? Who decides what should be included on our Website? Where do the ideas come from for JASPR articles? The answer: our member volunteers!
There are currently opportunities to get involved with the Benchmarking, Education, Fellowship, JASPR, Membership & Marketing, Regional & Chapter Relations, or Website Committees. Learn more about each of these committees
We invite you to dip your toes in the water by becoming a committee member! It’s a great way to use your professional experience and creativity to help take ASPR, and your profession, to the next level. If you like the waters, you can dive in and become a leader for a committee project, or a committee co-chair!The next several issues of ASPR Weekly will include Committee Spotlights for each of the ASPR Committees. If you’d like to get involved, please contact ASPR’s Executive Director, Jennifer Metivier, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 1-800-2777. See you at the pool!

NEJM CareerCenter has commissioned a number of physician studies and surveys to help physician recruiters better understand attitudes, trends, and behaviors among job-seeking physicians, in an effort to assist with physician recruitment and retention efforts. The findings of the most recent study help uncover useful information that is most compelling to recruiters. When do young physicians search for jobs? What job search sources do they use? What factors are most important to them? For anyone involved in recruiting young physicians, these are crucial questions. This is especially true given today’s extreme shortage of qualified candidates. The New England Journal of Medicine commissioned Zeldis Research Associates, Inc. to conduct an independent, blind study of young physicians, residents and fellows. The results provide an overview of when and how today’s young physicians search for jobs. Armed with this information, recruiters can adjust their strategies to recruit physicians more effectively.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to understand attitudes, trends, and behaviors among job-seeking physicians, in an effort to assist with physician recruitment and retention efforts. This will help recruiters better understand current drivers of recruitment decisions by young physicians.
