ASPR in the News: Physician Recruiting About to Get Tougher for Rural Hospitals
ASPR’s 2012 In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Report was referenced in an article titled Physician Recruiting About to Get Tougher for Rural Hospitals written by John Commins and posted on HealthLeaders Media, on October 10, 2012. ASPR Benchmarking Committee Co-Chair and Board Member at Large, Shelley Tudor, was interviewed for the article. Shelley noted that offer acceptance rates are higher in metropolitan areas resulting in interview to hire ratios being lower in urban areas.
Reminder: Residency Education Presentations and Tools Available
Many ASPR members provide educational presentations to help residents and fellows with their job search. We do this for two reasons: First, to provide helpful information to trainees that they would otherwise not receive from their programs, and second, to get an opportunity to get face to face contact with them and hope that they may want one of our positions that we’re recruiting for.
ASPR is pleased to provide our members with resources to help educate residents and fellows on a variety of topics which will assist them with their job search as they transition from training to practice. These resources will help you empower residents and fellows as they launch and manage their job search. Our hope is that ASPR members will provide education at their local and regional training programs and refer residents and fellows to the ASPR website to connect directly with our members.
You will find the resident education resources in the Member Resources section of the ASPR website. You will find available several PowerPoint presentations geared towards residents as well as some geared towards Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners. You will also find some additional documents that are available to download and share with residents that cover individual topics in more detail. Our “toolbox” also provides recommendations on how to use the resources and tips on gaining access to training programs.
Please use these resources and if the residents and fellows are not interested in staying in your area, please refer them to www.aspr.org/physicians to access our member directory to connect with colleagues in other parts of the country and search our physician job board.

Details and Online Registration
Historically, in-house physician recruitment departments have been vulnerable to elimination when health care organizations experience tough economic times or a change in system leadership. This session is geared toward giving you tools and a roadmap to help you build value for yourself and your department, making elimination or downsizing a poor choice on the part of your leadership. In addition, building value and credibility positions you for justifying budgets, growth in personnel and adding services for your internal customers. You will discover the methodology to evolve your organization’s thinking from “saving money every time you hire a physician without using a search firm” to a “revenue generation” model. You will learn what data to collect and how best to present it to demonstrate the return on the investment your organization has made in you and your department. Learn how to build your own personal and departmental brand, increasing your value to your organization and helping to secure the future for you and your department.
- Build a higher level of credibility with your “C Suite”
- Build your own professional/personal “brand”
- Promote a revenue generation philosophy and model as opposed to a money savings mentality
- Learn what important data to collect to benchmark success
- Develop communication tools and avenues to share the results
