Urgent Care News

One of the biggest changes in US Healthcare over the last decade has been the move away from Private Practice towards Physician Employment. This drive to consolidation has been somewhat relentless in most parts of the country. The advantage for physicians and smaller group practices has been the perceived security and taking away a lot of the administrative headaches that come with private practice. However, this comes at a great cost as well ( and not just in terms of earning potential). The loss of control and autonomy that goes with being an employee (in any arena) is something that always needs to be weighed carefully against any benefits. But for many physicians, especially in generalist specialties such as internal and emergency medicine, there exists a third way to reclaim that feeling of being your own boss without necessarily being in private practice. That is to undertake clinical duties in several different facilities on a per diem or moonlighting basis – totally on your own terms.
