Practicing medicine is not like other jobs that have a tradition of retirement at age 65. Physician shortages fuel support for physicians seeking to continue their careers indefinitely. Patient safety is paramount, but is it served by applying age restrictions on medical staff membership and clinical privileges?
If so, what is the magic number?
  • Can medical staffs and hospitals place restrictions on physicians based on age?
  • Should hospitals and medical staffs decide a retirement age for medical staff membership?
  • Can physicians sue, alleging discrimination and civil rights violations?
Attend the webinar to get answers to many such vital questions.
  • Age restrictions on medical staff membership and clinical privileges
  • State laws affecting physician age restrictions
  • Federal laws affecting physician age restrictions
  • Accreditation requirements related to age-based credentialing
  • Implementation of age-based screening
  • Eligibility for peer review protection
Age discrimination must be avoided while patient safety must be protected. Physicians are human but all humans do not cease to be functional at the same or any particular age. Credentialing processes must integrate age as part of competency assessment and need to better analyze the retirement age for medical staff membership.
