AAPPR Releases Benchmarking Report

The Association for the Advancement of Physician and Provider Recruitment (AAPPR) reports that “primary care specialties of family medicine, internal medicine, and hospitalist physicians are the most sought-after specialties, making them among the most competitive positions to fill.” This is a finding from AAPPR’s annual benchmarking survey, which comprises data gathered from before the COVID-19 pandemic. The 150 responses came mostly from large health systems, but some of the data is applicable to Community Health Centers. According to the survey, filling physician positions took less time last year, a five-year low for primary care placements. Purchase a copy of the benchmarking report.
