not to be contradictory - but i think painting a picture this rosy is a bit misleading. not only is this difficult for reasons of 'competition' in ones respective field, but it is becoming less possible for junior faculty to strike this arrangement with the hospital for financial reasons. there are certainly ways to keep in touch with both sides - some which are more feasible given ones specialty/field of research - but it requires more than tenacity to pull off. not to be discouraging - but i felt that my view while applying was slightly naive. i'm hardly jaded to the possiblity, but the barriers/other issues are just more apparent from my position now.
