This forum focuses on key issues arising in an employed physician’s workplace (whether hospital, medical college, practice group, independent physician association, or professional staffing organization). Issues to be discussed include: the competing and shared interests of medical employers and physicians; the fundamental tension between physician autonomy and duty of loyalty; the impact of the employment relationship on patient welfare and quality care; and traditional employment law issues, e.g., the employment contract, compensation, benefits, insurance coverage; duties and responsibilities, restrictive covenants, peer review/corrective action, and the interplay of individual agreements, hospital/practice group by-laws, managed care agreements, and external laws and regulations.
