Physicians Should Scrutinize Job Offers Before Accepting

(HealthDay News) -- Physicians should scrutinize job offers and pay attention to specific issues before accepting a job, according to an article published Dec. 3 in Medical Economics.

Noting that asking pertinent questions before accepting a job can save aggravation later, the article lays out ways to tell if an offer is too good to turn down.

According to the article, six factors should be considered before accepting a job offer. Physicians should consider compatibility between themselves and the work environment, including the physicians, other staff, and management. In addition, check references and speak to a physician who left employment to ask about their experience. Assessing the business health of the practice, ideally by asking an independent medical consultant to review the offer, is important. Have a back-up plan in case things don't work out. Understand the government and management within the practice, as well as personal management and committee responsibilities. Finally, examine the systems in the work environment, including personal space and job descriptions.

"Similar to a patient encounter, the most important factor to consider as you ask questions and collect answers is thorough documentation," according to the article. "In other words, get it all in writing."
