Employment Contracts: What You Should Know- 10/13, 12-1PM CT
Contracts are binding statements of the terms of the working relationship entered into by physicians and their employers/partners. Physicians need to be familiar with what their contracts include and omit, but should consult attorneys with experience representing physicians before signing anything. Physicians transitioning from residency to practice should be aware of the particular issues involving qualifications and remuneration which could create serious and expensive problems in their careers sooner or later, or both.
