In addition to connections to labour law and medical law, the contractual situation of chief physicians is characterised by hospital law, hospital compensation and the regulations that govern compensation in the medical professions.
Depending on the sponsoring institution in question, the situation can also involve aspects of the laws governing public service or canon law. A certain tension between the aims of the sponsoring institution, on the one hand, and the interests of the chief physician, on the other, is often typical as well. Confidently navigating these waters calls for highly specialised advisory services – right from the start.
