SUMMER 2014 | 61 Continued to measure. "I didn't really understand how someone's value is determined— nor did I ask," she says. "But you really need to know so you have a sense of what the future holds." Whatever the situation, you want to corral as many details as possible. No topic is too small to entertain during the interview and request in the contract. Make it clear, for instance, how you'll be sharing overhead, especially if you don't do the niche high-tech procedures your partner is skilled at or you're not in the off ce every day. Do you expect the organization to cover your continu- ing medical education or professional fees? And even though partnerships and buy-ins are routine interview grist, get the timing in writing. Conversely, learn how the non-compete clause re- ally works. When Michael Pokabla, D.O., was searching for his f rst glaucoma position in 2010, he didn't focus on money-relat- ed questions when he interviewed. But two years later when he and his wife de- cided to relocate from southern Illinois to upstate New York, he paid closer at- tention to what a partnership could look like. Hoping that his new position with Albany-based Glaucoma Consultants of the Capital Region would be long-term, Pokabla probed until he was comfort- able that the practice's buy-in schedule and terms matched his needs. They did. "Most groups know after a year or two where things are going," he says. "But if your contract suggests waiting longer to start the process, you might be waiting too long."
