ASPR in the News – Prime Time: PCPs Top Recruitment Searches
ASPR’s In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking report was referenced in an article titled “Prime Time: PCPs Top Recruitment Searches” written by Chris Kaiser and posted on MedPage Today, on October 3, 2013. The article recognizes the trend that many inhouse recruiters are seeing – primary care physicians are in high demand. Kaiser cites a number of findings from the Report, including the high number of searches done for nurse practitioners and physician assistants in primary care settings. Kaiser believes the increase in these types of searches is due to the primary care physician shortage and expects the demand to rise as hospitals continue to build patient-centered, accountable care models.

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.
