Physician Employment Contracts – Employee Perspective

Michael S. Byrd | 8.25.16

As the new year for senior residents across the United States begins, many physicians will be facing their first practice opportunities. Many physicians will be presented with their first employment agreements. Whether a physician is becoming an employee with a hospital or private practice, joining the faculty of a teaching institution, or starting their own practice, it is imperative that the physician evaluate the opportunity from all angles. When a physician receives an employment contract specifically, this means evaluating the risks inside and outside the contract.

In August, 2015, I presented a webinar to the young plastic surgeons in conjunction with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The webinar is titled “Contracting- From the Employee’s Side”.
