ASPR Committee Spotlight: Education Committee
The Education Committee is probably one of the more well known committees within ASPR due its responsibility for the planning the very visible ASPR Annual Conference. The current Education Committee Co-Chairs are Marlene Yates, from Cone Health in Greensboro, NC and Mary Lu Leatherman from Mid-Atlantic Emergency Medicine Associates, Charlotte, NC.
Members of the Education Committee are involved with the selection of the Annual Conference theme, program content, and social events. This past year, the Committee utilized a Call for Proposals for speakers and was tasked with sorting through the many proposals to identify the highest quality content and speakers for the 15 breakout sessions that were offered. They also developed three learning tracks that focused on different aspects of physician recruitment and/or retention. One of the most fun aspects of being a committee member is the selection of the Monday Night Event venue and entertainment. This year’s event at the House of Blues was definitely a hit!
The Committee meets via conference call on Tuesdays. Meetings vary from once a month to weekly depending on the phase of planning. If you’re interested in joining the committee, please contact ASPR’s Executive Director, Jennifer Metivier, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ASPR Member Referral Program
Have you heard? ASPR has a Member Referral Program! It’s been in place for many years, but we’re not so sure you know about it! Here’s how it works: Whenever a new member joins ASPR, they are asked how they became aware of our organization. If they were referred by an ASPR member, the name of that member is requested. For every member referral that ASPR receives, $10 is placed in a “pot”. Every time YOUR name is listed as someone who referred a new member, your name is entered into a raffle for a chance to win the “pot”. If the pot gets large enough (and it usually does), we divvy it up into two or more cash prizes. The raffle drawing takes place at the ASPR Annual Business Meeting to reward a few lucky members for their referrals. Prizes are typically in the $250-$275 range….that’s no chump change!
Refer someone to ASPR today (and every day) and make sure your name is entered for a chance to win the 2012 drawing! The more referrals, the bigger the “pot”, and the more chances you have to win! Thanks for the referrals! Keep ‘em comin’!
Webinar Tomorrow: How Physicians Search for Jobs
Register today for this free webinar being held on September 28 at 2:00 EDT.
Speaker: Cathy Mai, Marketing Manager, Recruitment Advertising, NEJM
Sponsored by The New England Journal of Medicine
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.
