Recognizing the importance of engaging legal services for the negotiation and review of employment contract agreements, the ACS has partnered with Resolve to provide a tiered menu of contract review services at a discounted rate as a benefit of membership in the ACS. Services are provided by Resolve’s team of experienced attorneys.
As an example of the breadth of issues that surgeons need to consider in their contract negotiations, Resolve has provided a document to review.
The ACS has partnered with AMGA to offer a discount for ACS members for the AMGA Medical Group Compensation and Productivity Survey Report. The Report focuses on the individual compensation and productivity of physicians and other clinical staff, starting salaries of new residents and experienced new hires, as well as salaries for physician leadership, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Metrics for 177 specialties are available in the AMGA report.
By using the ACS discount code, the pricing for the subsets will be $250 for one specialty, $400 for two, and $500 for three.
If you are an ACS member who is interested in obtaining the AMGA data subsets, email firstname.lastname@example.org, use code ACS2022, and provide the specialties you would like to purchase.

Since the publication of the Surgeons as Institutional Employees: A Strategic Look at the Dimensions of Surgeons as Employees of Hospitals primer in 2012, institutional and hospital-based physician employment has only become more complex. The ACS Division of Advocacy and Health Policy (DAHP), along with the General Surgery Coding and Reimbursement Committee, revamped and expanded the 2012 primer in response to requests from Fellows for more help in navigating the waters of employment, understanding compensation, negotiating contracts, and more. This updated primer is the first volume in a series of resources the DAHP is working to produce for practicing surgeons.
