Resolved Question:

The Louisiana Board of Medicine addressed the issue in a position statement dated August 20,1992. The board stated a physician could be employed by a corporation so long as protocols and policies were in place to ensure that the physician maintained independent judgment in the practice of medicine.

I would assume ownership would be in a limited liability structure, either corporate or maybe LLC, which would fit the scenario addressed by the board in the position statement. This is a permissible and now routine situation, but one which must be carefully crafted through workplace policies to clearly separate medical decision making from management.
