Redefining Recruitment to Retention

AAPPR Fellowship Program

The AAPPR Fellowship Certification lets you stand apart from the crowd because it demonstrates you have received comprehensive education in all aspects of physician and provider recruitment.

The AAPPR Fellowship Program is the most comprehensive, authoritative resource for health care professionals seeking to develop and test their skills and knowledge within a broad spectrum of topics including physician and provider recruitment, onboarding and retention, human resources, and relevant legal issues.

What does it offer?

The program provides an in-depth view of recruiting basics such as sourcing, screening, and interviewing, as well as delving deeper into advanced topics such as interpreting benchmarking metrics and understanding/implementing medical staff development plans. Recruitment professionals with the FASPR designation are equipped with resources, best practices, and cutting-edge training that is put to use every day in order to recruit and retain top candidates for their hospital and health systems, as well as to influence hiring practices in the provider workforce.

Studying for and taking the fellowship exams was the best thing I’ve done for my career. The courses were challenging and stimulating and reminded me that regardless of how long I’ve been an in-house physician recruitment professional (15 years), there’s always more to learn.
