Truly the national leader in healthcare
Hospitalist Physician (Current Employee) – California – February 16, 2018
I am a hospitalist physician with the Permanente Medical Group in Northern California. I work a 70% schedule and make over $200K per year. The workload is heavy but usually quite manageable. The stress level is as expected for a busy hospital. The medical group is very collegial. Inter-specialty relations are mostly quite cordial and your colleagues will be top notch. There are opportunities to teach residents and/or medical students, depending on the facility. Administrative time is available if you chair a committee, or work on performance improvement projects. The benefits are unparalleled.
The group is physician managed and physician driven and you have a great deal of autonomy in your practice, guided of course by best practices.
Benefits, Pay, colleagues, Job security, interesting work, flexibility, retirement
