ASPR Committee Updates
By Marci Jackson, FASPR, Physician Recruitment Manager, Marshfield Clinic, Marshfield, WI, firstname.lastname@example.org; and Michael Griffin, FASPR, Manager of Physician/Provider Recruitment, HealthEast Care System, St. Paul, MN, email@example.com
The ASPR Fellowship Committee has finalized the schedule of work to rewrite and validate new exams for Physician Recruitment 101, 201 and 301. We will update the corresponding teaching and resource materials for the Fellowship Certification Program. Committee members and Prometric (our test administration company) are working diligently at night and on weekends (yes, really!) These meetings are being conducted via teleconference. The committee identified teams of test writers and test reviewers. Test writing will be conducted simultaneously for all three exams. This is a huge undertaking, with presentations being updated before test writing occurs. The goal is to publish new tests at the completion of the ASPR 2012 Annual Conference.
We are delighted to have a great crew for our exam-rewrite endeavor. Those who have volunteered their blood, sweat and tears for various portions of the endeavor are: Scott Manning, FASPR; Lori Jackson Norris, FASPR; Louis Caligiuri, AASPR; Steven Jacobs, FASPR; Laura Screeney, FASPR; Judy Brown, FASPR; Donna Loy, FASPR; Lynne Peterson, FASPR; Steve Ruedinger, AASPR; Julie Juba, FASPR; Julie Brissett, FASPR; Donna Ecclestone, DASPR; Scott Lindblom, FASPR; Diane Collins, FASPR; Debbie Gleason, FASPR; Michael Griffin, FASPR; Ann Homola, FASPR; and our executive director, Jennifer Metivier, FASPR.
Once this initiative is completed, the committee will then focus on forming a speakers bureau, as well as recruiting additional speakers for the Physician Recruitment 101, 201 and 301 presentations.
We also are excited to announce the launch of our new Fellowship Brochure. It will be available on the website soon, and we also plan to have it in a downloadable format so members can send it to colleagues interested in continuing education and Fellowship certification.
Just a reminder that the recertification clock begins ticking in January 2012. It will be a requirement for all FASPRs to either obtain 24 continuing education units every three years in order to retain the FASPR certification or retake all three Fellowship exams.
Once a FASPR has recertified three times, he or she achieves lifetime Fellowship certification. The Fellowship Committee has added new members recently. We are happy to welcome Donna Ecclestone, DASPR, Julie Brissett, FASPR, Tina Stover, FASPR, and Lori Jackson Norris, FASPR, to our committee!
Physician Recruitment 201 will be offered on Sunday, February 12 just prior to the PracticeMatch conference in South Beach (Miami, FL). Join us for sun and education!
