About this Event

A physician employment contract is one of the most important documents a doctor will sign in his or her career. It defines that person’s responsibilities, how much he/she gets paid, how long a term for employment, who pays for your CME, licensing, maintenance of certification and other professional expenses, as well as the physician’s rights and those of the employer. The contract will determine whether compensation will be predicated on productivity or straight salary. It will be the guiding document for the physician’s tenure at whatever office or institution with which he/she will affiliate, and can set the expectations and parameters for a physician to achieve shareholder status in the future. For physicians joining groups and receiving income guarantees from hospitals, the employment agreement and other documents define the physician’s rights and obligations in the three-way relationship. Its importance cannot be overemphasized and therefore care must be taken to ensure that the doctor is aware of the potential pitfalls and minefields which surround the employment agreement. It is with this in mind that the physician retain proper and experienced legal representation to assist in explaining all of the specifics of the particular contract and recommend changes and raise issues which are contained within it.

We will be discussing some of the common issues arising in such agreements and recommending the retention of an attorney to explain the specifics of each contract with the doctor.
