The ACShas revamped and expanded its 2018 Employed Surgeon primer to address the ever-changing landscape of physician employment and the complexities of ensuring a surgeon’s expertise is fairly and equitably measured and valued by his or her employer.

ACSResources for the Practicing Surgeon: The Employed Surgeon (Second Edition) highlights some of the important principles of navigating career opportunities and the logistical, financial, and contractual nuances associated with becoming or maintaining one’s position as an employed surgeon.

  • Part 1: Dimensions of Employment
  • Part 2: Understanding Contracts
  • Part 3: Perspectives on Surgeon Value & Compensation
  • Part 4: Negotiation Basics

An appendix includes useful checklists and sample documents to assist surgeons in meeting their employment goals.
