Reminder: FASPR Recertification Requirements
As a Fellow of the Association of Staff Physician Recruiters (FASPR), it is important to demonstrate continued commitment to education and advancement in the physician recruitment profession. In an effort to ensure that FASPRs maintain an appropriate level of education commensurate with the FASPR designation, ASPR has developed FASPR recertification requirements.
As of January 1, 2012, FASPR certification will be valid for three years from the date of certification. Recertification will be required within three months of the FASPR expiration date. The following requirements must be met in order to recertify and maintain your FASPR status:
- Must be a current ASPR Member in good standing
- Obtain a minimum of 24 CEUs over the three year period since most recent FASPR certification
- If 24 CEUS are not obtained, recertification may also be obtained by re-taking and passing all three fellowship exams
- Requirements must be met within three months of FASPR expiration
If these criteria are met, you will receive a new FASPR Certificate upon your recertification. Once you have re-certified three times, you will receive a Lifetime Certification and will not be required to re-certify again.
FASPRs who obtained certification prior to January 1, 2012 will have three years to obtain their recertification requirements beginning on January 1, 2012 (i.e. by January 1, 2015 you should have 24 CEUs or re-take all three exams to recertify).
Learn more about eligible CEUs, the recertification application process, and FAQs on the ASPR website.
