What is ASPR?
The Association of Staff Physician Recruiters (ASPR) is a professional organization comprised of more than 1,100 in-house physician recruitment professionals employed directly by hospitals, clinics, physician practices, academic medical centers, and managed care organizations from across the United States and Canada.
What is an In-House Physician Recruitment Professional?
In-House physician recruiters are not head-hunters or large recruitment firms. They are employed directly by their health care organizations to recruit physicians for opportunities within their individual communities. Their goal is to make a good match for the practice, their communities, and you the physician.
Why Use an In-House Physician Recruitment Professional?
Unlike contingency firms, in-house recruiters are part of the organization’s heart and soul and are an integral part of their facility’s present and future. In-house physician recruiters can provide you with first-hand information on the community and practice that you are considering because they often live in the same town where the practice is based.
In-house physician recruiters are committed to helping physicians find the best jobs for their professional goals, geographical preferences, and lifestyle needs. They can introduce you to key people you need to know such as key administrators within the hiring organization, referring physicians, realtors, school administrators, potential employers for your spouse, etc. to ensure you have all of the information you need to make an informed decision and to feel confident in that choice.
ASPR aims to empower you, to make direct contact with in-house physician recruiters who can provide you with the information, support, and resources you need to make the right choice for you and your family.
