Hi All, I'm trying to make a decision about jobs. One is with a small private practice; another offer is as an employee of a community hospital. Can any of you offer insight about your experiences? Some of the factors I'm considering include: - Compensation - Autonomy (vacation, setting your own schedule) - The advantages/disadvantages of running your own practice. The compensation the hospital is offering is quite generous for a newbie like myself; however, I worry about the earning potential, and whether the terms will change much in the future. Is it a given that, if working for a hospital, you'll be working 5 days a week, earn less, have less vacation, etc. than in private practice?
