Your next job: How to find the right work environment

Evaluating the compensation package is naturally the first step when assessing a potential new job, but assessing your work schedule should be just as important. Job-hunting physicians should be sure to ask these important questions to gain a fuller view of what life might be like in the new job:

• Do physicians admit their own patients after hours, or is there an on-call hospitalist group?

• Do physicians field all after-hours calls, or is there a nurse triage system?

• How do physicians cover for one another when someone is out of the office?

• Are physicians expected to work additional urgent care shifts or extended hours?

• How much vacation or personal leave is allowed each year?
