Great article on going from employment to private practice

Another writeup on Medscape about how physicians leave employment, and start their own practices.

They interview four physicians, who describe some of the challenges, but also are clearly enthusiastic about the rewards. Here’s a notable quote:

If it’s not yet apparent, all four of these doctors highly recommend moving from employment to private practice when possible. The autonomy and the improved work-life balance have helped them find the satisfaction they’d been missing while making burnout less likely.

“When you don’t have to spend 30% of your day apologizing to patients for how bad the healthcare system is, it reignites your passion for why you went into medicine in the first place,” says Maniya. [SNIP]

For physicians who are also parents, the ability to set their own schedules is life-changing.

Needless to say, this is exactly why we created MedCoShare. Autonomy, work-life balance, the flexibility to set your own schedule… we think that happier providers are also more effective, and deliver better patient care.
