Have Questions About Participating in the Benchmarking Survey?
The 2013 ASPR In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Survey is open through the end of March. The Benchmarking Survey will collect 2012 recruitment data from in-house physician recruiters from across the country. All participants will receive the final report and an Organizational Benchmarking Report, and access to the searchable data for free.
Many physician recruiters have questions about the survey, so ASPR has set up a couple of options for you to ask questions. You may submit your questions via the ASPR Benchmarking Survey Q&A Form and your questions will be answered via email. You can also call the Benchmarking Survey Help Line every Wednesday from 2:00-2:30 p.m. EST throughout the survey cycle. Just call 866-394-4146 and use the Passcode: 76151010#.
Here are a couple of recent questions and answers that might be helpful to you.
Question: I am fairly new to the in-house physician recruitment field. How do I participate in the benchmarking survey in order to have access to the results?
Answer: You can participate in the survey online at www.asprbenchmarking.com. You will need to create a username and password to gain access to the Benchmarking Portal. Once in the Portal, you simply select “Participate in Survey”.
There are four sections for you to complete and one section for your HR department to complete regarding your compensation. There are indicators letting you know when each section is complete. Only those fields indicated with an asterisk (*) are required. You can take a peek at the survey screen shots to se exactly what questions are asked on the survey.
Tip: The searches section generally tends to be the most time-consuming. It is recommended that you gather your search information prior to starting the survey. However, you can save and re-enter at any point, if needed.

How are health reform and an evolving healthcare market shaping who doctors are and how they practice medicine? Why is our physician workforce no longer a united group, politically and economically? What is the “state of the union” of the medical profession? Who are our doctors today and who will they become tomorrow? What will be the keys to successful physician recruitment and retention?
In this webinar, Merritt Hawkins’ executives provide answers to these questions, examining how the physician workforce has changed and where it is headed. Drawing from data collected through one of the largest physician surveys ever conducted in the United States, this program provides insight into today’s physician workforce trends: who physicians are, how they practice, their morale, and their views on today’s healthcare system.
This webinar will touch upon:
- Data from one of the largest physician surveys ever conducted
- Physician supply and demand trends
- Changing doctor demographics
- The four generations of physicians
- The impact of the Supreme Court’s decision on physician practice
- Emerging physician practice models
- Emerging physician compensation trends
- Physician recruiting and retention strategies
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 guideline 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!
