Members don't see this ad.
Does anything aside from EM fit these criteria? I looked around on the internet, and it seems not.

Pretty much any specialty can have an office. If you get in with a group of doctors you wont have to work as much. I used to work in a pulmonologists office and they worked 1/2 days. One would work the 8am-12 shift and the other worked a 12-5pm shift. But they also did their part at the hospital so they worked much more than that. I would say on top of the office shifts they probably worked like 10 days a month at the hospital but it was more like on call for 10 days a month. There were many in the group however and that is why they did not work that much.
Oh and radiology work in shifts.

I know a couple of young anesthesiologists who have deal with their practices to do nothing but night coverage for a major medical center.

That sounds cool! Yeah, I love working nights! I'm a total night person. I don't know how I'm going to adjust to med school. :(

Yah, toothless, I think anesthesia is good for that. Some anesthesiologist friends of mine tell me that's why it's so popular lately. There's probably others. Radiology, kinda.

no idea what that comment means.

I think it means toothless is really WAAAAaaay out there, ;) and it's probably a good thing he wants to work nights. :laugh:

Hospitalist - that's a good idea!
Maybe pathology, or hematology would work out for your plan, too, toothless... Guess what? You have lots o' time to figure that part out!!

I know of a psychiatrist who works as an attending at a major hospital-- no on call, works M-F 8-4pm. With a sweet lunch break... did I mention no on call? He says he likes psychiatry in the hospital setting too because he manages the psyche unit and also completes consults throughout the house-- very interesting work.
