7 Things Physicians Should Know About Non-Compete Clauses | HospitalRecruiting.com

7 Things Physicians Should Know About Non-Compete Clauses | HospitalRecruiting.com | Physician Articles, News, and Humor | Scoop.it
“The AMA has come out against restrictive covenants; however, it has not become a matter of medical ethics,” explains Thomas Wassel. Unlike lawyers, who might be disciplined for trying to enforce such an agreement, as a practical matter, doctors do not face a penalty for fighting to uphold one. Without strong legal counsel and a clear agreement, doctors could suffer significant financial losses as the result of a successful lawsuit.

States try to balance an employer’s “protectable interest” with the desire not to do anything perceived as a “restraint of trade”. Non-competes are contracts, and it is important for a physician to fully understand a contract before he/she enters into it. No one wants to lose money or professional opportunities because he/she signed an agreement without appreciating all of the ramifications.

H-1B Visas for International Medical Graduates | HospitalRecruiting.com

H-1B Visas for International Medical Graduates | HospitalRecruiting.com | Physician Articles, News, and Humor | Scoop.it

Millions of Americans live in medically underserved areas. Many, if not all states face physician shortages. Recruiting and retaining physicians is important in filling that need. Currently, one quarter of all physicians practicing in the US are International Medical Graduate (IMGs), thanks in part to the H-1B and J-1 visa programs. An H-1B visa is a temporary work visa for professionals in specialty occupations, not just physicians. If you are reading this post, you likely will be interested in getting answers to questions like: What’s necessary to gain H-1B visa sponsorship? When is the best time to apply? What if you want to work for another employer while on an H-1B visa? How difficult is it to obtain an H-1B visa? What about your loved ones – can they live in the US? These questions are addressed in this post. In a future post, I’ll discuss what a J-1 visa is and how IMGs can use the J-1 visa waivers to their advantage... Click to Read More
