Employment Contracting: What to ask for? How to ask for it?
As our economic health care system continues to change and reorganize, more new and established physicians are becoming employed physicians. As a result there has been an increase in the amount of physicians that are covered by employment contracts. According to Dr. Michael Maves, past CEO of American Medical Association, “Physician employment is an integral part of the practice of medicine. Many physicians today are employed by small group practices, multispecialty group practices, medical faculty practice plans, hospitals and other institutions.” The AMA Office of the General Counsel has developed an Annotated Model Physician Employment Agreement as a resource for physicians who are negotiating an employment contract. The manual is a resource for both employed physicians and physician groups that employ physicians. To further educate physicians on employment contracts this educational program will provide an overview on what to ask for and how to ask for it when negotiating a contract. It will also highlight the provisions of an agreement and some negotiating techniques when entering into a contract.
