The Board of Directors of the National Association of Physician Recruiters has released the 2015 Physician Practice Search Guide, 2nd Edition, available for immediate distribution in paperback and as an e-book. This is the first time theGuide has targeted the tablet/e-reader market and created an e-book to send directly to Kindle/Kindle app devices.

"The opportunity to improve upon what the Association had previously published afforded us the chance to expand on an already relevant publication. More than two years in the making, this Guide answers so many pertinent questions physicians have and lead them to resources that they might not even have considered or been aware of," stated NAPR President Craig Fowler, Pinnacle Health Group. "NAPR is the premier organization for physician recruiters in the nation and it is our goal to serve as the primary resource for physicians seeking to find their perfect position, relocate, or even buy and sell a practice; whatever the situation."

Resident and fellowship programs nationally continue to recognize the Guide as a resource for their graduating residents and fellows as they seek new positions. The Guide has also received interest from Directors of Recruitment at hospital systems, clinics and practices nationally who utilize chapters of the Guide written by industry experts to develop quality recruitment programs, enhance site interviews, offer new possibilities in recruiting visa candidates, inspire ideas for retention programs and provide content in training new recruiters. The NAPR has received feedback that some practices have offered the Guide to incumbent lead physicians as a physical manual to serve as an update on current recruitment trends and as a refresher for recruiting new associates.
