I was just reading the University of Utah's web page for their ophthalmology dept, and it states that for their fellowship in cornea/refractive surgery, you must sign a non-compete clause that says you won't practice in the Salt Lake area when you finish the fellowship. Is this typical of fellowships? That seems like a raw deal. However, it may have more to do with the cutthroat world of elective refractive surgery right now. Comments?
