I talk about medical corporations from beginning to end, that is from forming or buying the medical practice to leaving, closing or selling the medical practice.  Along the way, I discuss some basic contracts for a medical corporation, including physician employment agreements, physician independent contractor agreements, shareholder buy-sell agreements, and physician exit / severance agreements.  I explain how to bring a new physician into a practice and how non-competition clauses work when the physician leaves the practice. 

Also, I apply the referral laws (Stark and Anti-Kickback) to these corporate and business law issues.

Without further ado, please go to the next article, Should you incorporate your medical practice?  Good luck.
