Education and Development Survey Now Open!
We invite you to participate in our latest survey – the ASPR 2014 Recruiter Education and Development Survey.
This new survey will gather information about continuing education and educational development. It was designed to determine what continuing education opportunities are available to in-house physician recruitment professionals. It will also gather information on your favorite resources for current healthcare industry news. You won’t need to gather any data for this survey and it should only take about 5 minutes to complete. Please participate by Nov. 17.
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!

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.
For anyone certified after Jan. 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. FASPRs who obtained certification prior to Jan. 1, 2012 will have three years to obtain their recertification requirements and must meet recertification requirements by Jan. 1, 2015. The following criteria must be met in order to obtain FASPR Recertification:
- 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.
Learn more about eligible CEUs, the recertification application process, and FAQs on the ASPR website.
November Webinar: A New Day for Primary Care: Will Medical Schools Deliver the Goods?
Date: Nov. 19, 2014
Time:10 a.m. PT / Noon CT / 1 p.m. ET
Presenter: Scott Shipman, MD, MPH, Research Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and of Community & Family Medicine, The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice
Primary care physicians top the list of searches for in-house physician recruitment professionals year after year. Healthcare reform and the aging of America continue to impact the demand for these physicians. Will our medical schools be able to produce enough physicians that want to go into primary care? This presentation will review current trends in medical school enrollment as well as trends in interest in primary care and service to underserved populations. The presenter will explore the many challenges the primary care workforce faces and discuss new models of primary care delivery. And finally, we will discuss the impact that these challenges and new models have on medical school and residency training.
