Physicians are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to negotiating their salaries and/or contracts because hospitals have access to all of the salary data, market insights, and negotiating expertise. Is it possible to level the playing field so that physicians have a fair chance? Ethan Nkana, JD, MBA, uses his in-depth experience to advocate for physicians to get the salary and contract value they have earned through his business Rocky Mountain Physician Agency, and in this episode, he will be sharing his advice with you.
