I've been trying to find a field that would allow me to see a variety of problems without needing to be in the ER. And I also don't think that I would want to have my own practice. So really I'm looking to be a primary care physician for inpatients, and my searches led me to the area of Hospitalists. What I've come to learn is that it's an area that specializes in the treatment of inpatients, which came about as a hospital management structure to free up specialists. And it seems to be becoming rather popular. Can anyone give me any insight into this field in terms of need, salary, living comfortability and treatment in work environment?
