2009 Conference Details

2009 has proved to be a very challenging year for the healthcare industry. The majority of our organizations are striving to reduce costs, improve quality, increase efficiency and preserve the bottom line. It’s evident going forward that in-house physician recruiters will have to be more focused, strategic and driven than ever before. In order for us to work in this evolving and highly competitive recruitment environment, we need to continually increase our skills and knowledge.

The 16th Annual ASPR Educational Forum afforded us this unique opportunity where we gathered from all across the United States and several provinces in Canada to network and learn the most up-to-date industry trends and tools available to help recruit and retain physicians in our local communities. The Educational Conference Committee has once again elevated this year’s conference, which included high profile presentations on leadership and excellence in our profession. The 301/Diplomat Track was offered for the first time as a full day of advanced training for our attendee.

In response to the rapid growth in our membership, several breakout sessions that allow attendees to choose their preferred topics of interest were offered. Breakout sessions included the following topics:

Benchmarking, Reporting & Tracking; Creative Writing to Enhance Sourcing & Marketing; How to Talk to Administration; Successful Mentorship Programs for New Physicians; Stark Law Considerations and Implications in Physician Recruitment; Plotting a Course for Success Through a Multi-Generational Physician Landscape; Immigration; and Medical Staff Development.

Additionally, attendees had the opportunitie to visit with approximately 100 vendors/exhibitors representing an abundance of services specific to physician recruitment and retention needs.

One of the main values of our Educational Forum is to network with other recruiters all across the country. For the past five years, we have set attendance records and our conference committee has once again raised the bar and has put together an excellent program.

The physician recruitment industry is a high stress and high-burnout profession. Another value of our Educational Forum is providing the recruiters with the opportunity to "get away” for a few days to network, learn and more importantly re-charge. The goal is to come away with increased knowledge or a few ideas that you can bring back to your respective organizations that will provide an immediate impact and return on your investment for attending. After reading reviews of the conference, attendees had essentially one word to say on this topic: WOW!

Our "101” program was designed specifically for those new to the field or desiring a refresher course in physician recruitment techniques and approaches. This program has been expanded and revised in response to the overwhelming feedback from enthusiastic past participants.

The "201” program was designed to build on the experiences of the "101” program and to broaden and enhance your knowledge base for recruitment.

A very special thank you to everyone who made this event go so well. From exhibitors and sponsors, to the planning committee and volunteers, you are the shining light of this ever-brightening organization!
