The National Association of Physician Recruiters (NAPR) is an organization geared towards helping Physician Recruiters in placing physicians globally with healthcare organizations.

Established in 1984, the National Association of Physician Recruiters (NAPR) was the product of a handful of physician recruiters who wanted to 'raise the bar' on integrity, confidentiality, and professionalism. Today, the NAPR is a membership organization consisting of over 300 physician recruiting organizations, hospitals, medical groups and individuals.

The founders of this organization strive to create and enforce industry standards for all physician recruiting and other healthcare specialists. Today, the NAPR services its membership through continuous and dynamic educational programs, by promoting a positive industry image and by requiring its members to adhere to a practical, but strict, code of ethics and standards of practice that can be found on their website.

Annual events[edit]

The NAPR holds an annual convention showcasing their educational opportunities for physician recruiters and their companies. The association also uses this event to elect new officers to their board of directors.

Educational webinars are available, and with membership, access to a School of Healthcare Recruitment, where one can gain a knowledge base and understanding of the field.
