Looking over a physician’s contract I was reviewing the other day I came upon a single sentence set into the “benefits” section:
“After twenty four (24) months of continuous employment employee will be eligible for consideration as a partner of group.”
I’ve seen this language in countless contracts. Many of my clients, especially those looking at an employment agreement for the first time, have found it extremely enticing, as it seems to hold out a carrot of great value, one to strive for.
My question is always: What does that sentence mean?
There are different ways to obtain loans. Getting one can sometimes be easy or hard, depending on the loan you want. Getting a loan for some can be easy, especially if you are a professional or a physician you need to borrow from money lenders. Follow these steps to help you increase your chances of getting the loan.
Apply For A Job
What sets physician loans apart from other types of loans is their ability to pay-off the debt. Money lenders have a guarantee that they will be paid a moment’s notice because the profession of the borrower is highly profitable. Moreover, physician loans are highly enticing because you can obtain a significant loan, unlike others. Something to keep in mind, however, when applying for physician loan you should also start looking for a job.
One of the considerations some moneylender looks at is if you are already looking for a job, or if you already have one. Having a job may serve as the basis for you to qualify for a physician loan. Getting a job or applying for a job is a guarantee that you will be able to pay your debt through your income.
Young physicians have some of the highest mortgage underwriting decline rates of any professional seeking real estate financing. This should not come as a surprise as most residents have a negative net worth (typically loans far exceed assets) and many coming straight out of medical school have not filed taxes in years.
How does one qualify for a mortgage with a negative net worth and little if any documentation of income?
To solve these challenges, the physician home loan or doctor mortgage as it is also called, was created to overcome the challenges physicians in training and newly attending face when trying to qualify for home loans.
What is a physician home loan?
According to HousingWire, Amazon is preparing to move into the mortgage space by seeking out a new head for that division. From HW:
Earlier this week, we reported to the LendingLife community that online shopping giant Amazon may be looking to get into the mortgage lending business, or at least that's the rumor among mortgage lending professionals.
While limited in scope, Amazon's plans are to start with offering checking programs first, then maybe move into the debt product space after.
Well, after reporting that, we’ve received information that Amazon is currently looking to hire someone to lead their newly-formed mortgage lending division.
Due to non-disclosure agreements, we probably shouldn’t reveal their identities. After all, with Amazon planning a move into mortgage lending, it’s best we work with them and not against them. Am I right?
We can say that if you look at the top 10 HMDA lenders and pick out the nonbanks, that’s where Amazon is recruiting their talent.
I, for one, welcome our Amazon overlords.
I’m not a big fan of buzz words, but when I ran across this one—intrapreneur—I was intrigued. As organizations have grown larger, intrapreneurs—persons within a company who promote innovation within the organization—have become the new movers and shakers, and company executives are on the hunt for this new type of employee, for people who can lead on important internal issues and, where possible, effect internal change that’s positive and, in many cases, ground-breaking.
In my work with new docs, especially those coming right out of residency or fellowship, I tend to see three distinct types. There’s the new physician that just wants to practice medicine, and not be bothered by operational issues. There’s the new doc that is only interested in those operational matters that have a direct impact on his or her bottom line. Finally, and more rarely, there’s the intrapreueur, the one that looks at a bigger picture of healthcare and is looking analytically at their practice, the group’s practice, and the immediate healthcare environment, finding ways to make very productive changes that benefit their practice, group, patients, and hospital.

You need to protect yourself from the financially devastating epidemic in our nation- outrageous student loan debts!! You need to obtain student loan protection in the event of a disability. This protection will be a safeguard so you will be able to meet your student loan payments!
Disability Insurance offers you the financial protection from many things that could hinder your ability to earn a living. Most people think that disability does not happen to younger people and that most disabilities are due to work-related accidents. Actually, the odds of having a long-term disability (one that lasts 90 days or longer) before age 65 are as significant.
A few months back I promised to discuss this topic a bit more, discussing the ways affiliations can be built, maintained and expanded in functional medicine practices. Let’s start with a few of the basics.
The primary combination of a good nutritionist and an FM doc is an absolutely “must have” for any functional medicine practice. Nutritionists don’t have to have an FM certification but need to be working in that direction; same with a doc if they don’t have an FM certification.
These two must get comfortable with each other to form an affiliation: More than just sharing referrals, the combination must be part of a clinical practice that is dedicated to expanding the patient experience and overall patient wellness. In my opinion, this is one of the most critical question to ask, and the answer has to be YES.
With this accomplished, the affiliates (I don’t want to use the word “partner” because it has an array of legal meaning) need to talk about their vision for creating this relationship, and discuss in detail their vision for the practice and its patients. Look down the road--Where would you like to be in 12 months? 18? 24??
