You are now a Dentist or Doctor or some other Health Care Professional! Now what? As you search for the right associate position for you, be sure to think about your future plans for two to 4 years out of graduate school. For those planning on associating straight out of school, it is important to consider whether you are planning to be a long-time associate or if you want to one day own your own practice.
PROTECTING YOUR INVESTMENT
Upon graduation, it is important to protect the investment you’ve made in yourself of the years since beginning on your path into the healthcare profession. In addition to Professional Liability Insurance, Disability Insurance is one of the first things you should obtain prior to graduation. DI will allow you to protect the investment that you’ve made in yourself. At Venture, we will monitor your career post-graduation and inform you when you have the opportunity to increase your benefit.
ASSOCIATE CONTRACT REVIEW
As you begin exploring associate opportunities, remember to do your due diligence prior to signing your contract with the employer. Things to consider during your contract review will be the restrictive covenant or non-compete terms. If you are planning on one day purchasing or starting your own practice, this will become very important. In addition, there are a number of other things that must be considered when reviewing. We have great resources for you that are licensed attorneys and they are very familiar with employment agreements for healthcare professionals. Call us at 977-277-4702 or contact us today for details.
