Contact Holli McConnell, Physician Recruitment Manger, at hdmcconn@, or visit Understand: An attorney's role Once you have interviewed and have been offered a contract, we recommend consulting with a health care attorney to help you evaluate the contract. Choose an adviser who has experience working with physician contracts. Try to negotiate a flat fee with the attorney, and keep them focused on the areas in the contract that are negotiable. This will save you time and money. Do not have the attorney involved in the negotiation discussions. You should be the one who speaks directly with the organization about your contract. Understand: Your role in your job search Remember, you need to look for the right opportunity — clinically, professionally and personally. Take some time to make sure you ask questions. It is your responsibility to understand the employment contract and compensation offer. Make notes on anything that you do not understand or that needs clarification, and ask questions along the way.
