Redefining Recruitment to Retention

AAPPR Announces First Annual Physician and Provider Recruitment Professionals Week

Special Recognition Events and Promotions Planned for April 24-30, 2022

The Association for Advancing Physician and Provider Recruitment (AAPPR) is pleased to announce the first ever Physician and Provider Recruitment Professionals Week, April 24-30, 2022, held in conjunction with the organization’s Annual Conference in Chicago, Illinois. This special week will recognize the hard-working professionals serving in the field of physician and provider recruitment, and onboarding and retention for a health system, hospital, network, specialty hospital, specialty practice group or physicians’ group.

Throughout the week, AAPPR will honor recruitment professionals with special giveaways and recognition throughout the conference, social media and the website providing a public forum where recruitment professionals can share their stories and non-recruitment professionals can express support for the profession. Unique opportunities for individual recognition will occur through a peer nomination format, allowing physician and provider recruitment professionals to shine a light on a colleague who goes above and beyond or has inspired others throughout his or her career. To participate, individuals will submit a recruitment professionals name and share a story or a note of gratitude the person mentioned will receive a special gift.

“Physician and provider recruitment is a uniquely challenging field, so AAPPR really wanted to create a special week to connect these professionals and provide some well-deserved recognition,” said AAPPR CEO Carey Goryl, MSW, CAE. “AAPPR is always focused on service of its recruitment professional members, but for this week we want to actively showcase the profession, celebrate stars of the industry and make it clear how much these dedicated professionals are valued.”

Participants for the event will be encouraged to tag photos and posts during the recognition week with the hashtag #PhysicianProviderRecruitmentProfessionalsWeek or #PPRPW. Increasingly updated information will be available at a unique landing page:
