• Starting New Job

When starting a new job you should sign an employment agreement. It covers the conditions of your employment and usually includes things like your salary, the hours that you will be required to work, your holiday entitlement, your position description and much more.

The goal of every negotiation is to reach an agreement that meets all parties’ needs. One of the most important things to consider when evaluating a potential job is the type of practice (solo, partnership, small practice, employer) in which you would like to work. Practice style (private, hospital owned, urgent care, locum tenens, etc.) and location (urban, suburban, rural) are also important to consider.

  • Contacting an employment

Although compensation itself may not be negotiable, you often can negotiate details such as schedule, office and call hours, administrative and meeting duties, funding for CME activities, and vacation time. By prioritizing your needs — clinical, professional, and personal — you can enter contract negotiations with a clear vision of the position that’s right for you.
