Considerations in a Physician Employment Contract

An employment contract must effectively communicate the desires and the expectations regarding the position. Although starting salary is something to be considered, it is not the most important factor. The physician’s personal style of practice, liability coverage, benefits and call schedules all play a part in having the best contract possible.

Dangers of not having an Employment Agreement Reviewed

A physician faces much risk when they take contract matters into their own hands. Contract terms are highly negotiable and have a great impact not only on professional life but also on lifestyle, family and the future.  There are many important contract terms and clauses which can present complex and diverse issues for any physician, including:

  • Unfavorable call schedules
  • Small Production Bonuses
  • Lack of Benefits
  • Not enough paid-time-off
  • Not enough vacation time
  • Unfair Non-Compete
  • Inadequate professional liability coverage
  • Potential Arizona Medical Board or Arizona Osteopathic Board issues

When your contract is reviewed by an experienced healthcare attorney, you will find great financial benefits which end up outweighing the cost of the review. You as a physician are a very valuable resource, and you necessarily should be treated that way.  Hiring an attorney to ensure you are fully protected is a wise move, and Chelle Law will assist you effectively in the contract process.
