The Association for Advancing Physician and Provider Recruitment (AAPPR) is redefining recruitment to retention and is the only professional organization where physician and provider recruitment leaders and others who influence recruitment, onboarding and retention can connect, learn and advance their careers.
Lynne Peterson, CPRP, is the Senior Director and Ambassador of Provider Recruitment and Retention at Bluestone Physician Services. Reflecting on what AAPPR means to her, Lynne states, “AAPPR members are unique in that they start the physician and provider recruitment process at a different place and a different perspective – from inside the health care setting. They are mission-driven. In-house recruiters know their communities. They are dedicated to bringing quality care to their friends, neighbors, and families.”
Furthermore, Lynne believes that in-house recruitment professionals genuinely care about the entire process of placing physicians and providers in their health care system. “There is a sound and effective methodology that our recruiters adhere to; there is concern about fitting into the culture, the community, about how their children or family would like it.” In-house recruiters are dedicated to ensuring that providers have all the information they need to make the best employment decisions for themselves.
“Advancing the recruitment profession has been especially important during this time of constant change in health care and response to the Covid-19 pandemic,” says Lynne. “AAPPR members stand together, and that makes us resilient – our organization continues to listen to our members, partners, and peers to understand the changes in the health care landscape as it relates to provider recruitment. #IamAAPPR!”
#IamAAPPR is a celebration of our members and the fantastic work they do in health care in their communities every day.
Carey Goryl, MSW, CAE, is the CEO of AAPPR. Carey believes that the #IamAAPPR campaign is a platform to highlight AAPPR members, strategic partners, and programs directly from people living it every day. AAPPR is a committed partner in advancing physician and provider recruitment professionals and their careers, connecting the best and brightest across the United States, but AAPPR doesn’t exist without its members and strategic partners.
Carey says that membership in AAPPR is not only about the beneficial opportunities to connect and engage, it is also about the educational content that is not available anywhere else. AAPPR publishes critical data and research unique to the recruitment continuum. AAPPR helps you stand out as an expert in the recruitment profession by offering mentorship, certification, webinars with thought leaders, and so much more.
Carey believes that, by far, the most significant advantages of AAPPR membership are the relationships members develop and their ability to interact with each other. AAPPR facilitates these connections.
“There is a strong sense of pride that comes with being a part of AAPPR – The #IamAAPPR campaign allows us to showcase that pride and our unique members. We hope you’ll join us in sharing your testimonials and stories by partaking in our survey.“
