Armon publishes A Physician’s Guide to Employment Contracts

Health Care

Getting a contract – then evaluating it with confidence – are important steps in your employment journey

Bruce D. Armon, Co-Chair of the Health Practice, wrote this article for PracticeLink.com. It offers advice to physicians -- particularly those who are just starting their careers in medicine -- on how to land a job offer and successfully negotiate a contract for employment. 

The story explains how hospitals and other health care employers screen potential employees, and it alerts doctors to questions they should ask once they are invited for an interview. Key elements of contracts are covered, including term and termination, salary and benefits, work schedule and post-employment restrictions. The article also explains how involving an attorney with experience in health law can help with contract negotiations and review.
