Physician Employment Agreements
The American Medical Association (AMA) recognizes that many physicians are becoming employees of hospitals, medical groups, and other health care systems. For the physician making a career move—and looking to do so with greater knowledge and confidence—the AMA offers several resources that can enhance your understanding and negotiating position as you navigate employment contracts and opportunities in various practice settings.
While the AMA's annotated employment agreements are not substitutes for legal advice from qualified, health care counsel experienced in representing physician clients, they do provide a thorough description of basic contract terms typically found in such employment agreements, as well as in-depth explanations of the significance of such provisions and language that benefits the physician employee. In addition, these resources offer important examples of language that may be problematic to the physician employee.
