Some health centers work with doctors’ part-time needs
More doctors, particularly women, are now choosing to work part time, and some health providers are accommodating them. The percentage of physicians practicing on a part-time basis rose from 13% in 2005 to 19% in 2007, according to the 2007 Physician Retention Survey released by Cejka Search and the American Medical Group Association. Though working part time adds balance to a physician's high-stress lifestyle, some experts say that these work-hour decreases are worrisome due to the nationwide shortage of doctors.
