|The Association of Staff Physician Recruiters launches online certification program|
St. Paul, MN, March 18, 2014 — The Association of Staff Physician Recruiters (ASPR) announced today the launch of its online Fellowship Certification Program. ASPR established the Fellowship Certification Program to provide a means of educating individuals in the in-house physician recruitment industry on topics including physician contracts, Stark law, immigration, sourcing, screening, onboarding, retention and more. In order to become certified, participants must complete three modules and pass three corresponding exams. The availability of the online program provides maximum flexibility with busy work schedules and enables in-house physician recruitment professionals to learn at their own pace.
The Fellowship Certification Program provides tremendous value for both new in-house physician recruiters and seasoned veterans. Participants learn the basics of physician recruiting in the first module and progress to more complex topics in the second and third modules, building on what was learned in the previous module. Each module includes all presentation materials as well as an abundance of supporting documents which are useful in the field as well as for exam preparation. This cost effective and affordable program provides invaluable firsthand information taught by industry experts and provides participants with resources, best practices, and cutting edge training specific to in-house physician recruitment professionals.
“Achieving ASPR Fellowship Certification demonstrates that you have received comprehensive education in all aspects of physician recruitment, onboarding and retention.” said Executive Director Jennifer Metivier. “In an industry that is constantly evolving, education is the key to staying abreast of the latest trends and best practices for recruiting physicians and advanced practice providers. In-house physician recruiters who take this step to further their education demonstrate to their employers and colleagues that they are at the top of their field.”
In addition to the online program, ASPR also features each of its Fellowship Certification Program modules at its annual conference. The next annual conference will be held Aug. 23-27, 2014 in Minneapolis, Minn.
