Medical schools equip their students with little, if any, formal training in the legal or business concerns of practicing medicine. Many young physicians are filled with fear and anxiety about seeking their first “real” job. Some are so concerned that they choose to remain in academia only because they are familiar with the practice environment. This primer was written with the young physician in mind. It was designed to be a quick and easy read. It will help any physician understand the complex concepts of a physician employment contract. After reading this primer, one should have a firm grasp of the major components of a physician employment contract and be ready to negotiate with a potential employer. We want you to be an Astute Physician (astute is defined as “marked by practical hardheaded intelligence”).
