SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I have a couple of questions for the board. I will be finishing my residency in 9 months and looking for jobs. I have a potential opportunity to set up a solo practice in THE ideal location (close to family, nice area) with the backing of a small community hospital for a certain period of time. I do not know all of the details of the opportunity but the situation appears as follows: 1. They would guarantee 12 month salary plus expenses for the first year (loan) 2. Loan forgiveness over the next 3 years if you stick it out. 3. Would be practicing in office building the hospital owns, but I would be responsible for everything, hiring, buying equipment, billing. 4. I would operate at said hospital (hospital does almost exclusively outpatient surgeries) 5. No direct call for the hospital (so not sure how my call situation would settle I am told that there is a large need for ophthalmologists in this area, and that they do not like "shipping" all of this business across town. Is this why they would sponsor someone? What types of questions do I need to get answered because I am intrigued by this potential job opportunity?
