I am researching the following. Any replies or copies of policies/bylaws language would be greatly appreciated.

Re issues around aging physicians, retirement, call coverage, etc:

1) How do you handle physician retirements –what is the process for obtaining retirement dates?
2) Do you allow physicians to opt out of call at a certain age? If so, how long?
3) How do you handle physicians who are aging and need to reduce their call burden but want to continue to work?
4) What if someone becomes ill – how long do the others pick up their call?

Thank you,
