This CLE course will provide guidance to counsel for healthcare facilities and physicians on managing oncology service lines. The panel will review applicable laws, regulations and other considerations to structure service lines, including physician contracts, to meet compliance requirements and avoid common pitfalls.


This presentation is focused on operational and regulatory issues that are specific to hospital/physician arrangements in medical and radiation oncology. For many hospitals, the oncology service line is one of the largest and most complex.

Oncology arrangements are varied, and many issues arise in oncology arrangements that have unique regulatory and operational challenges.

Listen as our authoritative panel closely examines the spectrum of hospital/physician oncology arrangements.

    1. Model
    2. Payment arrangements
  2. Key regulatory concerns

    3. Employment contracts
  3. FMV and business considerations


The panel will review these and other key issues:
