Special Interest Groups

A special interest group is comprised of in-house physician recruitment professionals from across North America (generally not regional) who have a similar special interest in common, for example, a group of in-house physician recruiters who recruit only pediatric specialists.  Some regional groups are incorporated as independent non-profit organizations and some are less formal groups designed to encourage cooperation, collaboration, and/or education for their members. Although some members of the special interest group may also be members of ASPR, the special interest group as an organization does not have any formal affiliation or relationship with ASPR.

Children's Hospital In-House Recruiters Network (CHIRN)
Children's Hospital In-House Recruiters Network (CHIRN) is a special interest chapter that has been added to the ASPR memberships. If you are recruiting for Pediatric-specific positions, this chapter is a great addition to your membership.
