Antitrust 101 Webinar Tomorrow
Register today for this FREE webinar held May 8 at 1:00 PM EST. Can’t make it? View it later On Demand!
Speaker: Heidi Christianson, Attorney, Nilan Johnson
This webinar will educate you regarding the most common types of antitrust concerns that you should be aware of as an in-house physician recruitment professional. ASPR has recently required re-registration for the Chat listserv with a focus on educating members on antitrust issues. Many members have questions about what is and is not ok and legal to ask others electronically (Chat), at meetings, on the telephone, etc…regarding physician compensation and benefits packages and other related questions.
This webinar will discuss the most common “off limit” topics of discussion, the types of activity against which regulators have taken action, and penalties for engaging in antitrust behavior. We will discuss hypotheticals to bring this topic to life. Learn how to protect yourself, your employer, and ASPR by becoming educated on antitrust and what you can and cannot discuss with others.
JASPR Feature – Budget Planning: Beginning at the End
Budget planning: Beginning at the end!
By Jennifer Metivier, MS, FASPR, ASPR Executive Director, 800-830-ASPR (2777)
So your new boss has just asked you to develop next year’s departmental budget. Your immediate thoughts are “Oh no! My old boss used to do this for us! I’ve never had to develop a budget before…where do I begin?” Well, a good place to begin…is at the end. The end of last year, that is!
Here is an example of one way to develop your budget. Begin by gathering data on what your department spent last year and where that money went. You’ll also need to know some benchmarking data — including the number of open positions, candidate interviews, and placements made. Hopefully you’ve tracked expenses in a manner that allows you to determine exactly how much was spent and where. If not, I bet you will plan to do so for the coming year!
