St. Paul, MN, February 25, 2013 — The Association of Staff Physician Recruiters (ASPR) recently opened its 2013 Benchmarking Survey for participation. “Benchmarks are critical as we constantly strive for improved processes and results to meet the healthcare needs within our communities,” says Jennifer Metivier, MS, FASPR, executive director of ASPR.
Addressing the shortage of physicians continues to be a top priority for hospitals across the United States. The Association of American Medical Colleges Center for Workforce Studies projects the shortage to reach 91,500 by 2020; statistics supported by the increasing percentage of positions that go unfilled each year as found in the 2012 ASPR Benchmarking Report.
“Physician recruitment has become increasingly competitive, and organizations are finding it more difficult to fill their open provider positions,” says Metivier. “We can best meet these recruitment challenges by identifying opportunities for improvement within individual organizations and understanding the larger industry landscape.”
Participation in the ASPR Benchmarking Survey provides recruiters and administrators a customized analysis of their organization’s recruitment data as well as access to national trends in physician employment data, recruitment process statistics, and recruiter compensation.
