In the area I've been looking at for post residency practice, my job search has been coming up somewhat lacking in traditional style IP/OP practices. Generally, I don't want to give up hospital medicine right after residency, but the area I would like to be in seems to have very well established hospitalist programs at even small critical access hospitals. This leads me to wonder if it would be feasible to look for work on a part time basis (either 0.5-0.75) in an outpatient setting, and then work one week a month as a hospitalist. For instance, working 3 weeks in clinic, then working 7 days in the hospital. Anyone doing this currently, or know people that are? Are there barriers to this type of work other than the typical barriers to part time outpatient work?
