(revised April 2016)

The Code of Ethics is the principles and standards we, of the National Association of Physician Recruiters, have agreed to as a condition of Membership. Our commitments, actions and Professional Conduct are reflected in the following Code. The Code represents the manner by which each of our organizations fulfills its obligations to other Members, the general public, Clients, and Candidates. The establishment of these rules of conduct is to positively distinguish our Members and to reflect the pride of our commitment to fulfill the needs of those for whom we provide service.

The National Association of Physician Recruiters recognizes as professionals all individuals who provide physician recruiting and other healthcare services whether they recruit for clients or for their own organizations. The NAPR stresses honesty, objectivity, integrity, quality and competency. Members of NAPR are obligated to conduct business in a manner which reflects positively on the profession and their Association.
