This CME course is a must for anyone negotiating an employment contract, reviewing their present contract or considering a new employment opportunity.

There is no one who is more concerned about your compensation, the details of your employment contract, or your profession and personal fulfillment than you.  Healthcare reimbursement and compensation is becoming increasingly complex and the contracts that describe your connection to an employer more so.  Leaving those details to others because it is too complicated or time consuming, can have adverse consequences.  Every physician should take an active role in crafting a fair and equitable work environment.  It begins with finding the right job, understanding the details of an employment contract, negotiating a relationship that aligns with your skills and values, and making sure your time spent at work is fulfilling.  We discuss the technique of effective negotiation; how to prepare, how to conduct the negotiation itself, and important factors to consider once the negotiation is complete.  We then continue on to what to expect in the first year of your new employment, and how you can, through the negotiation process, create a work environment that is fair, equitable, and aligned with your values. 

This course will guide you through the employment opportunity evaluation process with special focus on:

  • Reimbursement rules
  • Physician compensation models
  • Systematic practice opportunity evaluation
  • Employment contract interpretation
  • Contract negotiation
  • Optimizing first year practice performance

We all work very hard in our practices, lets make sure we all are professionally fulfilled and compensated fairly for that work.

This CME course is presented using a state of the art, multimedia, interactive, virtual classroom.  Instructors will follow your progress, interact with you often one to one, and provide mentoring during the class and beyond.  Access is through any device connected to the internet using any network.
