winter 2015 PracticeLink.com 19 desiring to renew a contract (versus terminate a contract in favor of subse- quent employment) have achieved acceptable work-life balance. Two key components of their satis- faction are ensuring that the services they are expected to provide are consistent with their training, and entering a role that is not laden with administrative duties. Put simply, physicians are most productive and satisfied when engaged in meaning- ful work. In my practice, it is increasingly common for my clients to negotiate more so for an additional week of vacation or a four-day workweek than an additional few thousand dollars. Other common requests are set aside and capped time for clerical work and other administrative duties, or having a large percentage of those clerical duties delegated to other personnel. No matter what kind of contract you accept, understand how it shapes your time at both home and work. l Roderick J.
