Member Practice Agreements and Non-Compete Agreements:
All full-time (> 0.5 FTE) faculty members at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, including clinicians and basic scientists, are required to sign a University Physicians, Inc. (UPI) Member Practice Agreement (MPA). Signing the MPA is required by the Board of Regents as a condition of employment. Faculty members with clinical responsibilities are also required to sign a Covenant not to Compete (Non-Compete Agreement).
Note: as of November 17, 2009, employees of DHHA are no longer required to sign Associate Member Practice Agreements and are therefore not UPI members.
New faculty members with clinical responsibilities will be contacted by UPI to sign the MPA. New faculty members that do not have clinical responsibilities will also be required to sign an MPA, which will be included with their letter of offer.
