Zachary Cohen Speaks at New York Medical College Program
Zachary Cohen, a member of the firm’s Health Care, Corporate and Intellectual Property Practice Groups, gave a presentation to more than one hundred fourth-year medical students at New York Medical College’s School of Medicine “Transition to Residency” program. The medical students, who will graduate later this year, are required to take a one-week course to facilitate their transition from medical school into specialized residency programs. In addition to specialty tracts focusing on procedural skills and case-based problem solving sessions, they also attend sessions that will enhance their professional development. Mr. Cohen was invited to prepare a presentation on Healthcare Law Fundamentals.
The presentation was a one-hour legal primer, reviewing such topics as the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute, Stark Law, Health Care Fraud, Billing, Coding and Documentation, OIG Exclusion authority and State Fraud and Abuse Laws. Mr. Cohen also delved into key employment agreement provisions that young doctors commonly encounter, including indemnification, terminations, restrictive covenants and professional liability insurance issues.
