2012 ASPR In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Report Now Available

The long-awaited Benchmarking Report is finally here! On behalf of the ASPR Benchmarking Committee and Board of Directors, we are pleased to present the 2012 ASPR In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Report. ASPR offers not only a written report of the survey findings, but also an online Searchable Results tool that allows users to mine national data for export. Survey participants have the added option to access a unique Organization Benchmarking Report (OBR) online that compares their results to organizations nationally.

If you participated in the survey, you will have free access to the Report, your unique Organization Benchmarking Report, and the searchable results. You should have received an email directly from Industry Insights regarding access. If you did not participate this year, you may purchase the Report and access to the searchable data.

You will continue to have access to the 2011 Report and data if you participated in the survey or purchased the report/data. This will allow you to export data for both years in order to make comparisons. A 50% discount is available on the 2011 Report (and data) if you purchase the 2012 Report.

Access the Executive Summary, Final Report and Searchable Results!

Committee Co-Chair Transitions

We have some transitions occurring with our committee co-chairs that take effect as of today, August 14th, at the ASPR annual business meeting.


Congratulations to Robin Schiffer, DASPR, MedCentral Health System, Mansfield, OH, on her appointment as the new co-chair for the Education Committee. Thanks and appreciation to our outgoing Education co-chair, Allen Kram, FASPR, who has worked tirelessly along with Co-Chair Joelle Hennesey, FASPR, Manatee Healthcare Systems, Bradenton, FL, to orchestrate an amazing annual conference. Joelle and Robin will work together to plan an incredible conference in 2013 in Tucson, AZ, with Allen continuing as a committee member.


Congratulations are also in order to Lynne Peterson, FASPR, Fairview Health Systems, St. Paul, MN who will become the co-chair of the Fellowship Committee! Deep gratitude and appreciation goes to outgoing Co-Chair, Michael Griffin, FASPR, HealthEast Care System, Minneapolis, MN for his many years of service as the Co-Chair of the Fellowship Committee. Mike Griffin and Marci Jackson, FASPR, Marshfield Clinic, Marshfield, WI were the first Co-Chairs for the Fellowship Committee and have grown our certification program from its infancy to the comprehensive program that it is today. Marci and Lynne will work together as Co-Chairs to continue the growth of the program and Mike will remain on as a Committee member.


We also congratulate and welcome Miranda Grace, AASPR, Lewistown Hospital, Lewistown, PA, to the co-chair position of the Journal Committee!

Having trouble breaking into residency programs? Wonder how others have been successful in gaining opportunities to present to residents and fellows? What should you do once you do gain access to the programs? This panel discussion will provide you with tips and ideas on how to develop relationships with your regional training programs. The panelists will offer recommendations on the types of value added programs and activities you can offer residency directors and coordinators to help them do their jobs. Learn how to dole out the educational content to keep them coming back to you for more. Once you have your foot in the door, opportunities for on-going dialogue abound!

Reminder - Residency Education Presentations and Tools Available

Many ASPR members provide educational presentations to help residents and fellows with their job search. We do this for two reasons — first to provide helpful information to trainees that they would otherwise not receive from their programs, and second, to get an opportunity to get face to face contact with them and hope that they may want one of our positions that we’re recruiting for!

ASPR is pleased to provide our members with resources to help educate residents and fellows on a variety of topics which will assist them with their job search as they transition from training to practice. These resources will help you empower residents and fellows as they launch and manage their job search. Our hope is that ASPR members will provide education at their local and regional training programs and refer residents and fellows to the ASPR website to connect directly with our members.

You will find the resident education resources in the Member Resources section of the ASPR website. You will find available several PowerPoint presentations geared towards residents as well as some geared towards Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners. You will also find some additional documents that are available to download and share with residents that cover individual topics in more detail. Our “toolbox” also provides recommendations on how to use the resources and tips on gaining access to training programs.

Please use these resources and if the residents and fellows are not interested in staying in your area, please refer them to to access our member directory to connect with colleagues in other parts of the country and search our physician job board.

ArticleWhat You Don’t Know Can Cost You: Building a Business Case for Recruitment and Retention Best Practices

By Lori Schutte, MBA, President, Cejka Search, St. Louis, MO

In an industry driven by evidence-based outcomes, it is surprising to learn that the majority of healthcare organizations do not measure how much high turnover and an inefficient hiring process may be costing them. Only one in four medical groups quantifies the cost of turnover.1

However, with key benchmarks and recruitment metrics in place, you can make informed decisions about how — and how much — to invest in building an efficient, effective recruitment and retention program.
