What to Review in Your Physician Contract
Most employment contracts should be straight forward, outlining what the employee needs to do to keep employment and gain benefits, such as their wages. Physician contracts can be much more complicated than the average contract due to the legalities and specifics involved with becoming a practicing physician. Your expertise not only makes you a valuable worker but also directly influences the health of patients, adding a unique level of legal concerns to your employment, which must be reflected in your contract.
Physicians also have a high rate of turnover compared to other high-paying, high-performance jobs. By some surveys, including those conducted by Cejka Search, which is a leading physician consulting and recruitment firm, around 7% of medical professionals will leave their workplace each year in search of better employment. The majority of physicians who quit do so due to lack of fair financial compensation and benefits, exemplifying the importance of thorough contract review.
Items of particular interest we can review in your physician contract include:
- Salaried wages
- Benefits packages
- Potential for job advancement
- Expectations and guidelines
- Possible penalties for missing requirements
- Tenure opportunities
- Liability in case of wrongdoing or incident
