What does a Medical Director do?
The Medical Director’s job description can vary from clinical oversight and supervision of a clinic for emergency procedures and protocols, as well as being a legally required part of the partnership between their professional corporation and the management services organization that operates the practice when required in certain states. The Medical Director’s responsibilities include availability for response to emergency situations, and satisfying any training requirements for the scope of practices in all types of businesses from medical offices, urgent care centers, med spas, mobile practices, patient homes, and via telemedicine. Often the Medical Director requirements vary from state to state, and it is recommended that both parties have experienced legal counsel involved in the creation of the management services agreement (MSA).
Finding the Right Medical Director
For a healthcare provider, starting a business can be very complicated. In twenty-six states and the District of Columbia, there are varying legal requirements for a physician to fill the Medical Director role in your practice. These can provide a wedge between your new business and your future success. You need to be sure that any agreement with a Medical Director complies with state laws, prescription regulations, and physician ownership requirements. It is very important that the physician understands you and your practice, as well as your goals. Each opportunity is unique and needs personalized service. Good Medical Directors help you to properly operate your new practice.
What is a Medical Director?
A Medical Director is a physician who partners with a registered nurse, esthetician, or other healthcare providers to provide the legally required clinical oversight, in some states with proximity requirements attached, to satisfy the laws that allow the practice to operate and see patients. In those specific states with corporate practice of medicine (CPOM) laws, the physician may own a professional corporation (PC) that is established to meet the ownership requirements. Fortunately, remote Medical directors can be utilized in most states. Also, in non-CPOM states, physician ownership of a medical practice business is not required, so the professional relationship does not require the formation of additional corporations to stay compliant.
