Don’t miss out on an opportunity to contribute to the industry’s only independent survey of in-house physician recruitment professionals.  Greater participation rates provide increased usefulness and significance to the data for your individual organization and to the healthcare industry at large.

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.

Beginning January 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 January 1, 2012 will have three years to obtain their recertification requirements beginning on January 1, 2012.

The following requirements must be met in order to recertify and maintain your FASPR status:

  • 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 CEs, the recertification application process, and FAQs on the ASPR website.

Physicians go where they are welcomed, remain where they are respected, and grow where they are nurtured.” - Bill Leaver, CEO and President of Iowa Health System.  If you agree with this statement, then you know that your organization needs an effective physician retention program.   As physician recruitment professionals, we all know that retention is just as important, if not more important, than recruitment.  This webinar will discuss how to identify “when trouble is brewing” with your physicians, why physicians leave, and what you can do to implement an effective physician retention program in your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover what physicians feel is important to feel recognized and valued.
  • Understand how to gain buy-in from your physicians and administration for a physician retention program.
  • Learn the steps required to implement a physician retention program in your organization.
