    Hello everyone!

    Daily Republic has an insightful article about an apparent new trend that has physicians opting out of private practice and heading to more “lifestyle-friendly” employment such as hospitals. The article cites a statistic that the percent of doctors working as employees jumped to 38 percent in July 2015 from just 26% in 2012.

    We’re not ready to declare the private medical practice dead just yet, however. If there’s one trend we believe is abundantly clear it’s that change seems to be constant and it may not be long before some software, perhaps, greatly simplifies some of the physician concerns with health care billings and regulations and makes private practice look more appealing than hospital employment.

    Obviously, this is pure conjecture as we don’t have a ‘crystal ball.’ What hopefully is clear is that we want to make sure aspiring applicants give careful consideration to their prospective medical career paths and understand the current trends that may impact them.

    Best of luck with your applications!
