Stand Out from the Crowd with an ASPR Fellowship Certification
There are in-house physician recruiters — and then there are in-house physician recruitment professionals who are certified Fellows of ASPR. What’s the difference? Plenty.
As a certified Fellow of ASPR (FASPR) , you demonstrate to your peers, employer and physicians your commitment to continuing education and excellence in the discipline of physician recruitment. Through our educational program, you’ll gain the knowledge, understanding and tools to attract, recruit and retain physicians who are valuable assets to your organization.
But that just scratches the surface. Through the Fellowship Certification program, you’ll sharpen your skills with cutting-edge physician sourcing methodologies, effective screening techniques and powerful interviewing tactics. Delve deeply into complex but important topics like benchmarking metrics and trends, regulatory issues and immigration laws. And you’ll learn from the best — highly experienced, successful in-house physician recruitment professionals.
Get the edge on the competition. Become certified as an ASPR Fellow! Get started today by taking the Physician Recruitment 101 program via on demand webinars!
September Webinar: Primary Care Practice Acquisition and Employment: Best Practices

Presenter: Craig Holm, Senior Vice President, Health Strategies & Solutions

Details and Online Registration
Recruiters are increasingly responsible for recruiting physicians to hospital employment situations and less to independent private practices. This is particularly true in primary care and other select specialties (e.g., cognitive medical specialties, general surgery, and others). Recent surveys have determined that more than half of physician practices are employed by hospitals and health systems. In this session we will share success stories (and unsuccessful stories) of the differences between recruitment to employment situations vs. private practice, and more importantly, best practices for recruiters to consider in the recruitment process: valuation expedience, employment contracts and compensation methodologies, and unique cultural compatibility considerations. The session will have particular emphasis on primary care, where national and regional health care reform initiatives, and other influences are making the recruitment of primary care "ultra competitive."

ASPR Mentor Program – Call for Mentors
The ASPR Mentorship Program is designed to provide new, in-house recruiters with a “go to resource” for the multitude of questions which are inherent to our profession. The Mentorship Program is one that is ultimately focused on helping our new members grow and develop professionally and is a rewarding experience for both the Mentor and Mentee.
The Mentor-Mentee relationship consists of a seasoned recruiter being matched with a new-to-the-industry colleague. The two form a relationship which allows for consistent and open communication designed to provide the mentee with “tools of the trade.” The mentor serves as a sounding board for ideas, provides referrals for items of interest (advertising sites, locums firms, and residency programs), introductions, and anything else that can make the mentee’s transition into the physician recruiting world a little easier.
We need your help to make the newly revamped Mentor Program a success! We are putting a call out to all eligible members to consider becoming a Mentor. In order to become an ASPR Mentor, you must be an ASPR member for at least two years and you must also have at least three years of physician recruitment experience or have achieved the Associate designation of the Fellowship Certification program (AASPR).
You can view a webinar to learn more about what is involved in being a Mentor and read the new guidelines that was developed for Mentors to help facilitate discussions with their Mentees.
For those of you who would like to be assigned a mentor, we will be reaching out to all of you once we have our roster of Mentors ready to go. Keep your eyes peeled for more information!
