Committee Profile: Resource Library
If you’ve used any of the forms or information located in the ASPR Resource Library, then you understand how important the Resource Library Committee is to the mission of ASPR. The Resource Library Committee is responsible for maintaining and procuring current and relevant resources for inclusion on the website. The committee is currently chaired by Jennifer Feddersen, MSM, PHR, DASPR, Manager of Henry Ford Medical Group Physician & Henry Ford Health System Advance Practice Provider (APP) Recruitment and Aymee Quinn, FASPR, Physician Recruitment Manager at Asante Physician Partners.
The Resource Library Committee was developed to demonstrate ASPR’s commitment to excellence, professionalism and sharing. The goals of the Resource Library Committee are as follows:
- Improve access to relevant educational material.
- Standardize industry documents so members may easily adapt the content to their organizations.
- Monitor industry trends so relevant information is continually made available to members.
In addition to its ongoing projects of monitoring chat and social media for relevant content and reviewing items in the resource library, the Resource Library Committee is currently seeking volunteers to help with the development of a recruiter toolkit. The recruiter toolkit is a new project for the Resource Library Committee and is a great place to jump in to help! The toolkit will include the things every in-house physician recruitment professional needs to run or improve the recruitment department. For the month of November, the committee is focusing on department structure, including adding job descriptions, assignments, work flows and more.
If you would like to join the committee to help with this latest project – or have documents you are willing to share - contact one of the co-chairs at email@example.com.
Get Your Data Ready - Benchmarking Survey Opens in January!
It’s that wonderful time of year again! We are busy thinking about all the things we need to complete before the end of the year, and getting your data ready for the benchmarking survey should be on that list! The 2015 ASPR In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Survey will open in January so you still have plenty of time to get organized and be ready to input your data.
You will need to provide the following information for the survey:
- Contact: Contact information for the person completing the survey and the person who will receive the final report.
- Demographics: Basic information about your organization, your department, and your work as a whole.
- Recruiter Profile: Information regarding title, education, experience, certifications, etc. on each member of the recruitment department, including non-recruiters.
- Recruitment Compensation: Information regarding compensation (base and bonus) for each member of the department.
Note: Many organizations have an HR representative complete this section.
- Expenses: Information in this section is intended to capture all costs associated with development or management of an organization’s in-house recruitment department. Because of this, you should include expenses charged back to internal departments, but exclude fees charged to practices not owned by the reporting organization. It is designed to allow entry directly from the annual budget.
- Searches: Information specific to each search you worked on during the year, such as specialty, population, number of applicants, the current status of the search, etc.
Tip: This section generally tends to be the most time-consuming. It is recommended that you gather your search information prior to starting the survey. However, you can save and re-enter at any point, if needed.
ASPR has made it even easier to submit your data with the On-Demand Tracking Tool. Using this tool will not only help you prepare for the benchmarking survey, but it will provide you with a great tool to generate all your end-of-year recruitment reports!
How to Access the On-Demand Tracking Tool
The On-Demand Tracking Tool is located in the ASPR Benchmarking Portal. If you have not already created a username and password you will need to do so (note these may be different from your ASPR username and password).
Once you log in for the first time you will be required to provide your contact information. After this step and for subsequent logins, you will see that the ASPR Benchmarking Portal offers three options:
- On-Demand Tracking
- Access Reports & Searchable Data (for previous surveys you have participated in or purchased)
- Participate in the Survey (available only during survey months)
How to Use the On-Demand Tracking Tool
Select the On-Demand Tracking option to begin and then select “Add Search” to complete the requested data for each search you conduct throughout the year. You have the ability to edit each search so you can update them later as your search efforts progress. You will have the ability to print or export the data to excel at any time for all of the searches you have entered. When it is time for the next benchmarking survey cycle to begin, you will be able to easily and quickly upload the search data directly into the survey.
The 2015 ASPR In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Survey will open in January 2015. Remember that if you participate in the survey you will receive the final report, organizational benchmarking report and access to the searchable data for FREE!

Date: Nov. 19, 2014
Time:10 a.m. PT / Noon CT / 1 p.m. ET
Presenter: Scott Shipman, MD, MPH, Director of Primary Care Initiatives and Workforce Analysis, Association of American Medical Colleges
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.
