Physician Recruitment Incentives & Contracts Survey Now Open
We invite you to participate in the new ASPR Physician Recruitment Incentives and Contracts Survey designed to collect information regarding physician contracts, benefits and recruitment incentives directly from in-house physician recruitment professionals. The survey doesn’t require gathering any data and should only take about 5 minutes to complete. Please participate by August 1.
Does this survey sound familiar? That’s because ASPR just published the 2014 Physician Compensation, Benefits & Recruitment Incentives Report, which collected similar data directly from PHYSICIANS. This new survey will collect the data from YOU – those who are putting out job offers on a regular basis. We plan to compare and contrast the results of this new survey of in-house physician recruiters with the data received from physicians.
You do not have to be an ASPR member to participate in this survey, so feel free to share the survey link with other non-member, in-house physician recruiters. (Note: Employees of recruitment firms are not eligible to participate.) Results of the survey will be published on our website and as always the more participation, the more valuable the data. Please participate today to contribute to our industry’s growing knowledge base!

July Webinar: Rural America: The Race to Recruit Physicians
Registration is nearly full so register today for the July Webinar - Rural America: The Race to Recruit Physicians.
Rural facilities often struggle to keep the pace with metropolitan areas in the race to recruit physicians. Though the basics of the recruitment process are the same, rural health policy, resources and partnerships often take the recruitment process down a different course than metropolitan areas. Rural facility practice requirements, physician supply and geography are often hurdles that can become race changers for rural facilities.
