There’s Still Time to Participate in Our Latest Survey!
There's still time to participate in our latest survey– the ASPR 2014 Recruiter Education and Development Survey. The deadline to participate is Nov. 17.
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.
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!

Webinar Next Week: 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.
