Law for Physicians: An Overview of Medical Legal Issues focuses on the legal issues that affect physicians in their professional lives, with the aim of arming them with the practical knowledge they need to protect themselves.

This book includes topics such as: Physician unions-to familiarize physicians with the means by which they can voice their concerns and wield meaningful leverage in their service contracts. How to avoid enhanced civil and criminal penalties due to health care fraud and abuse. Medical malpractice issues to help physicians head off potential claims, advise them on the choice of liability insurance, and explain the litigation process. Guidance on employment discrimination law to aid physicians in avoiding employee litigation.
