Too many physicians default to ineffective strategies when it comes to contracts and they:
Try to be a ‘Good Doctor’ and blindly trust the contract offer is fair
Show up without a plan and ‘figure it out’ in the moment
Think it doesn’t matter and focus on getting to work
Don’t be underpaid and undervalued from the beginning of your employment

Be Valued & Compensated for the Skilled Physician YOU ARE
At Simply Street MD we know that you want to be confident negotiating an employment contract. Except, there’s been no training to help you develop these important skills. It’s just wrong to be a skilled physician and feel like you have the weaker hand when it comes to contracts.
The medical culture expects physicians to work hard and ask for little in return. Linda combines experience as a negotiation coach & medical subspecialist with the national pay data to help you learn the techniques to thrive in any negotiation.
Stop trying to convince yourself that an initial employment offer is good enough.
Instead, invest in yourself and learn the skills to negotiate well. Celebrate a contract that reflects your worth as a physician.
“You have actually made me excited to negotiate!”
~ Katie Deming, MD
“I was a military physician searching for my first civilian job and had zero experience negotiating contracts when I met Dr. Linda Street. She helped rid me of imposter syndrome, dispelled common myths of physician contracts, and highlighted typical anti-physician language in many contracts.
With her coaching, I successfully negotiated and signed a forever guaranteed contract at 75% MGMA for my specialty, 2x larger signing bonus, shorter initial contract length, and secured a 4-day work week.”
~ Beth Gaida, MD
“Before I worked with Linda, I was apprehensive and intimidated by my lack of knowledge with contracts and negotiation. I was surprised by how easily I was able to apply her process and how much more confident I became in my worth as a graduating resident. She coached me to use stronger, more confident (and less apologetic) language, which I believe greatly influenced my results.”
~ Sonya Rice Thompson, MD
“Before working with Linda, I felt nervous and unprepared. I was surprised there was a learnable roadmap as far as strategy. I was also surprised by how underpaid we are in Pediatrics.
After working together, I felt in control. I knew my worth and was prepared with MGMA data. The initial contract offer was less than my salary after residency 8 years ago. I responded confidently with facts and value, and the follow-up offer was much better!
I am thrilled with the results and proud of myself. It was actually easier than I thought it would be with the mindset of being in control from the beginning. The return on investment from negotiation coaching was huge - a raise, better schedule, no nights/holidays and working only one Saturday per month.”
