Pittsburgh, February 8, 2012 - Select International and The American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration (ASHHRA) will host an upcoming webinar spotlighting the approach to physician employment and the issues being raised by the trend. Taking place on Thursday, February 16 at 1:00 p.m. ET, the panel of presenters will examine the reasons behind the physician employment trend, the role of HR, and the practical and legal issues that come with these new employees.
The panel discussion, “Dear HR Director, Meet Your New Employees – Physicians. Good Luck! ” will address the growing trend of physician employment by hospitals. This trend is forcing hospitals to re-think the physician workforce - how they attract, recruit, select, engage and develop these highly paid, valuable employees. This trend also raises questions about the role of human resources, and the associated practical and legal issues. The session will examine:
- Reasons behind the physician employment trend
- Selection and how to ensure the right fit
- The cost and cause of turnover
- Physician engagement
- Performance-based compensation models
- Selecting and developing physician leaders
- Recruitment strategies
- HR and legal issues unique to physicians (Employment contracts, ADA, ADEA, Benefit Plans, employment discrimination, and the hiring process)
The speaking panel includes the following professionals:
- Maria Greco Danaher, Shareholder, Ogletree Deakins Law Firm. Greco Danaher provides guidance to healthcare clients on a variety of employment law matters, including the unique issues raised by physician employment.
- Robert Crossey, D.O., President, Premier Medical. Dr. Crossey leads the largest multi-specialty group in Western Pennsylvania and has held numerous hospital leadership positions.
