Leaving Practice During the Era of Covid-19

June 5, 2020

The impacts of the COVID-19 virus will cause some physicians to make changes to their practice situation by seeking a position at a new practice, transitioning to a job that does not involve patient care, or choosing to retire. Regardless of the type of change, physicians must meet certain obligations when leaving or selling a practice. OMIC’s Leaving practice toolkit outlines the steps physicians and practices need to take to promote continuity of care, prevent allegations of abandonment, and preserve the medical records. Preparing for the change will help decrease the associated stress and the likelihood of lawsuits.
