Tips for Understanding Contracts

This month’s Residents Corner explores the topic of “Tips for Understanding Contracts” with Dr. Vanita Ahuja, who is a hospital-employed surgeon at WellSpan Health York Hospital in York, Pennsylvania; Dr. John J. Castronuovo, Jr, who is Vice President of Surgical Services at WellSpan Health; and Ms. Amy L. Nelson, who is an Associate General Counsel at WellSpan Health Administration. In their video, they introduce concepts of,

  • Compensation types (RVUs, productivity and base salary, incentives)
  • Terms of separation (restrictive covenants)
  • Other benefits to consider (paid vs scheduled time off, CME, society memberships, other specialty training)
These concepts or terms may be unfamiliar to some of you, and if they are, ‘now’ is a great time to start talking to people around you to become acquainted with them and learn the advantages/disadvantages of different components!
