Negotiating a Win-Win
ISMS members: Free
Non-ISMS members: $75.00
Many physicians are unaware of the opportunities they have to advocate for themselves with a potential employer, or how to access professional development resources to assist with negotiation. A poorly negotiated employment agreement or work schedule can negatively impact both a physician’s personal and professional life. The purpose of this activity is to educate physicians on the nuances of negotiation and self-advocacy, as to understand expectations of the employer during negotiations. The program will also help participants develop skills to utilize while negotiating, including growing confidence, while entering these conversations, which will ultimately form a better working relationship with their employer.
At the conclusion of this activity, learners will be able to:
- Discuss the concerns and issues physicians and employers may encounter while negotiating employment terms
- Recognize the nuances involved in negotiating an employment contract and accessing professional development resources
- Identify opportunities for employers and employees to negotiate and compromise
- Build stronger relationships between employed physicians and their employer
