Academic Medical Centers

Vorys has extensive experience dealing with the unique issues faced by academic medical centers.  Vorys represents medical schools, teaching hospitals, faculty practice plans, research institutes, and affiliated organizations throughout Ohio and around the country.  We have assisted academic medical centers in all aspects of their operations.  Our attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience in fraud and abuse, federal Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark Physician Self-Referral Laws.  We counsel our academic medical center clients in connection with the formation, operation, and tax exemption of faculty practice plans, internal compliance audits, the consequences of the various payment arrangements that exist among teaching hospitals, medical schools, and faculty physicians and the increasingly complex interplay of Institutional Review Boards, the FDA and industry sponsored clinical trials and human subject research.  All of this, coupled with Vorys’ extensive history representing colleges and universities, provides Vorys the background and experience to offer our academic medical center clients comprehensive legal representation.
