Medical School, Residency, Fellowship, and Physician Group Presentations:

We love providing valuable educational presentations to medical students, residents, fellows, and physician groups. We pride ourselves on sharing as much as possible about physician contracts and closing the information gap between first contract physicians and healthcare employers. If you would like for us to present to your group, we would love to help! Virtual presentations are currently free, but we may need to discuss a fee for in-person activities. Please reach out!

Podcasts

The Black Doctors Podcast

With Dr. Steven Bradley

Dr. Steven Bradley is a board-certified anesthesiologist and medical ethicist with a passion for mentorship and increasing diversity in the healthcare workforce. As an assistant professor of anesthesiology and now an anesthesiology and critical care physician, he combines his practice of medicine with educating medical students and resident physicians. As the host and creator of The Black Doctors Podcast, Dr. Bradley interviews minority professionals in a variety of career paths. Each episode provides encouragement and motivation for listeners. Candid and transparent conversations enable listeners to identify with and be inspired by guests on the show.

Our podcast episodes have focused on the intersection of national legal news affecting physicians, first contract physicians and navigating initial employment options, and how physician contracts have affected our lives. Please check it out!

Backtable ENT

With Dr. Varun Varadarajan

Dr. Varadarajan is a is a neurotologist and skull base surgeon practicing in Denver, Colorado. He has several episodes on Backtable that discuss issues surrounding navigating career decisions in medicine, and I highly recommend you consider listening to everything he has produced on that platform!

Our podcast episodes provide a 2.5 hr deep dive on physician practice settings (academic, private practice, and hospital and large group employment), negotiating and transitioning between opportunities, and how contracts affect the practice of medicine.

BOSS Business of Surgery Series

With Dr. Amy Vertrees

Dr. Vertrees has a passion for helping physicians access the resources and learn valuable business skills that are not taught in residency. She is the author of a new best seller in medicine, “Become the BOSS MD”, and maintains an active coaching and podcast series. Our podcast focuses on some of the most important negotiation points in physician contracts, and how think of contracts in terms of executing your live plan. We both feel very strongly that every physician should evaluate and negotiate their contracts, and that “Normalizing” negotiations help all physicians.

Here are a few high points:

  • When should you start considering contract negotiations? (it’s earlier than you think!)
  • What may hold you back from starting your job and keep you from making money?
  • What should you ask on interviews?
  • Do you have an exit strategy, and what should your contract have in it to support this strategy?
  • Can you negotiate if they say “this is a standard contract”?
  • What are the most common mistakes made in contract negotiations?

Texas Chapter of the American College of Cardiology

Fellow In training

In October 2022, I presented to a group of cardiology fellows in training and discussed physician contracts and exit strategy issues. It is important for first contract physicians in all specialties to enter into contract evaluations and negotiations with appropriate background knowledge about employment contract. We discuss some of the most important exit strategy issues and have a few laughs.

Before you start interviewing, seriously consider if PSLF is right for you. I encourage physicians to consider public service loan forgiveness when they have 1x or more in debt compared to their expected annual revenues. Additionally, I encourage physicians to leans towards PSLF-eligible employment when they want to live in a high cost of living area, they have kids, they have a nonworking spouse, they have other debts, or maybe they’re just generally not great at saving. I have tons of clients that come to me after 3 to 7 years in a PSLF-eligible employer who have accomplished forgiveness, and are now looking to do something different with the next step for their career. if you were hesitant about PSLF because you don’t believe it is actually working, I encourage you to reassess because I see it working almost every week. #physicianemploymentcontract #physicianemploymentcontractreview #physicianemploymentlawyer #physician #physicians #physicianresident #resident #residents #medstudent #medstudents #medicalstudent #medicalstudents #DocsNegotiate2024

Many physicians pick a job expecting to work in a particular location. The job posting mentioned it. The interview process was conducted at this location. The offer letter mentioned it. However, the contract said work location “shall be at the discretion of the employer.” A few years pass by. Management changes. The employer changes a bit through acquisition of private practices and new leadership. The folks you interviewed with are no longer with the employer. Nobody remembers the interview promises made to you years ago because they only have the contract. That contract has an “entire agreement” clause that says any other promises not made in writing in the contract are not enforceable. You ignored the 2 yr 50 mile noncompete because the employer said it was standard and your attending repeated that useless phrase. Now you are forced into a 2hr daily commute because terminating your contract means pulling your kids out of their school and your spouse giving up a job that they love… this is a common occurrence. Seriously consider the impact of an open-ended work locations clause! #physicianemploymentcontract #physicianemploymentcontractreview #physicianemploymentlawyer #physician #physicians #physicianresident #resident #residents #medstudent #medstudents #medicalstudent #medicalstudents #DocsNegotiate2024

Yes, even anesthesiologist need to be wary of a terrible exit strategy! Pay close attention to the nonsolicit of facilities… If the practice you’re working at has multiple contracts with facilities across your area and prevents you from working at any of those facilities upon exit, you might find yourself in a very problematic restrictive covenant! Although it doesn’t really make any sense, I also see geographic restrictions on anesthesiologist. Finally, make sure you cover the other basics, like the malpractice tail provision, term and termination clauses, moonlighting versus exclusive contracts, and compensation clawback and waiver issues. I will occasionally see anesthesiology contracts that have a flat salary with completely open ended definitions of work obligations and exceedingly painful exit strategies… Please don’t let this be you! Anesthesiologists are not immune from terrible contracts and specifically terrible exit strategies, so please make sure you properly evaluate and negotiate your contract. #physicianemploymentcontract #physicianemploymentcontractreview #physicianemploymentlawyer #physician #physicians #physicianresident #resident #residents #medstudent #medstudents #medicalstudent #medicalstudents #docsnegotiate2024
