Question:

Jennifer, 

Do you think it matters if my employment agreement is specific for my subspecialty? Is that level of specificity necessary?

Thanks, Dr. P 


Answer:
 
In most instances, yes.  For contracts, the details matter.  Your offer as a general specialty v. a subspecialist may very, as well as your responsibilities (such as, call obligation, hours on, administrative responsibilities, etc.).  If you are signing on to a non compete, you may prefer the subspecialty be named, allowing your general practice post-separation. Of note, subspecialists often command a premium on any offered salary; be sure to inquire before signing!
