Analyzing and Negotiating Physician Employment Agreements

No matter which way you look at it, whether you own your own practice, become a part of a large physician group, or become an employee of a hospital, you will be signing an employment contract of some sort. Maria Todd, author of The Physician Employment Contract Handbook, Second Edition: A Guide to Structuring Equitable Arrangements leads this timely one-day workshop that reviews various issues and topics addressed in physician employment contracts and explains how each contract works.

Learn about

    • The latest managed care entities how they view employed physician relationships
    • Review of basic concepts in fraud and abuse, corporate practice of medicine, and antitrust concerns.
    • Gain an appreciation of the various legal and compliance issues related to physician employment, such as anti-self referral and anti-kickback issues
    • Learn how to resolve disputes through arbitration or mediation to avoid the hassle, cost and negative publicity involved in litigation.
    • Understand the pros and cons of various partnership arrangements

After you have completed the workshop, you will be able to ask deeper and more meaningful questions of legal and accounting counsel. You'll feel more confident when you review and analyze an agreement you've been offered. You'll also be able to compare a prospective employer’s contract to other standard agreements without endangering confidentiality agreements.

You'll come away from the workshop able to design standard text, saving you time and money on legal fees. You'll still need an attorney and an accountant to review your draft document or changes you want to negotiate, But you'll spend less to have them add the final touches to contract drafts instead of starting from scratch.

With proper planning and a clear understanding of both short- and long-term objectives, you can move into the future and take advantage of opportunities in the current healthcare revolution.
