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."
- Understand the impact of acquisition and employment on recruitment
- Appreciate best practices for the acquisition and employment process in a new era of competition for PCP's and payment
- Understand innovative compensation methodologies

Member Referral Program – Have you Referred Someone Lately?
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 several cash prizes. The raffle drawing takes place at the ASPR Annual Business Meeting to reward a few lucky members for their referrals. This year ASPR selected eight members to each receive $100! The winners at this year’s Annual Business Meeting were:
Refer someone to ASPR today (and every day) and make sure your name is entered for a chance to win the 2013 drawing! The more referrals, the bigger the “pot”, and the more chances you have to win! Thanks for the referrals! Keep ‘em comin’!
