For the first time, more physicians are employed than in independent practice, a recent American Medical Association survey found. However, many physicians choose solo practice, and there are clear pros and cons to both practice settings.
If you have questions about whether to choose independent practice or employment, an AOIA webinar on June 9 at 7 p.m. CT will provide answers.
It can be difficult for a physician to decide which practice setting works best for him or her. The webinar presenter, Randy Bauman, president of Delta Health Care, a consulting firm that specializes in physician practice, will identify and examine the factors physicians should consider when contemplating a change from private practice to hospital employee and vice versa.
Webinar attendees will emerge with tools for all sides of this equation: sustaining independence, selling a practice, sustaining hospital employment or terminating employment and re-establishing private practice.
The registration fee is $109 for AOA members and $149 for nonmembers. The fee includes a copy of Bauman’s book “Choosing Autonomy: The Physician’s Guide to Returning to Private Practice.”
