Assistance for Doctors

Associateship Agreement

Associateships are a popular business structure for many medical practitioners, as they allow doctors to carry on separate practices while sharing certain business-related expenses.

They also offer a large degree of independence, enabling doctors to work full- or part-time, are relatively simple and inexpensive to set up and maintain, and help avoid some of the possible pitfalls of practising in partnership.

AMA Victoria’s pro-forma Associateship Agreement can start you off with the right legal agreement – potentially saving you thousands in initial legal fees and reducing the potential for future disputes – so you can fully benefit from this form of independent practice with your colleagues.

It includes extensive commentary and detailed advice for adopting an associateship, as well as a draft agreement that can be tailored to the associateship’s specific needs, particularly in the event that services will be provided by a service entity.

Purchasers receive a hard-copy draft agreement and an electronic Word version that can be tailored to individual needs.

AMA Victoria recommends that each partner obtains independent legal advice before executing an associateship agreement.
