The American Medical Association (AMA) recognizes that many physicians are becoming employees of hospitals. For the physician making a career move—and looking to do so with greater knowledge and confidence—the AMA offers a new resource, Annotated Model Physician-Hospital Employment Agreement. This valuable resource addresses the specific needs of physicians who are preparing to negotiate an employment contract with a hospital or related entity and will enhance a physicians' understanding and negotiating position as they navigate employment contracts.
Annotated Model Physician-Hospital Employment Agreement provides a thorough description of basic contract terms typically found in an employment agreement, as well as an in-depth explanation of the significance of such provisions and language that benefits the physician employee. In addition, this resource offers important examples of language that may be problematic to the physician employee.
