Physicians as Employees: The Individual Employed Physician

Wednesday, October 2, 2013
6:00pm - 8:30pm

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.

Presenters are:  
Pamela S. Brier, MPH, President and Chief Executive Officer, Maimonides Medical Center
Alan Fleischman, M.D, Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and Epidemiology & Population Health, Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, and a leading expert in medical ethics
James R. Kahn, Esq., Deputy University Counsel and Secretary of Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University
Robert B. Stulberg, Esq, Partner, Broach & Stulberg, LLP, representing individual physicians and groups of physicians
