Employment Contracts for Healthcare Professionals


Created on October 01, 2020





As more and more physicians and other healthcare practitioners enter the workforce, employers, whether they are hospitals, clinics, or private practices, are updating their employment contracts to create more restrictions for practitioners. It is important for practitioners attorneys to review these contracts closely, not only to confirm that the terms of the offer are correctly drafted, but that practitioners will not be prevented from practicing within their field and/or within a reasonable area should their employment be terminated. In order to negotiate successfully on behalf of the practitioner, attorneys need to understand the language utilized within the industry, including HIPAA, billing procedures, payment structures, and restrictive covenants.  

This course will provide you with an overview of the key aspects, clauses, and terms common to healthcare employment agreements. Attorneys will have a better understanding of whether contract terms are reasonable in their scope, whether practitioners will have the ability to continue to provide services should they leave the employment agreement, and how to identify missing language that should be included in order to protect the practitioner.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the key legal clauses in healthcare employment agreements
  2. Identify legal issues that are not in the best interest of the practitioner
  3. Successfully negotiate the terms of these agreements
  4. Provide a practical guide to practitioner clients before, during, and after employment
