Every physician should know where their money comes from. It does not matter whether you are in private practice, employed by a hospital, or academic medicine. We all expect to be paid for our service and be paid fairly. In the current age of production-based employment contracts, no physician is immune to the underlying factors that affect their reimbursement and how work becomes cash. This presentation will prepare you for physician employment contracts where you will learn how to analyze and negotiate an employment contract. Talented but uninformed physicians put themselves in a vulnerable position. Empower yourself with knowledge.
This online course has been prepared for any individual who works as a healthcare provider. There are no prerequisites to participate.
