Apparently, physician employment opportunities are on the rise.
“The Las Vegas Review-Journal” recently reported that “the health care industry is one of the top 10 fastest growing areas for employment over the next decade.
“More than 14 million jobs were created in healthcare in 2008 and more than 3 million jobs will be healthcare-related through 2018,” according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
“There are a lot of changes coming with healthcare reform, and we provide the opportunity to take the burden off an individual physician from administration and other work,” said Hartley White, vice president of HealthCare Partners of Nevada’s human resource department.
“There are many perks of providing patient care with a healthcare group; benefits include being able to treat a client for many different maladies as well as being able to care for the entire family under one medical plan, which can provide some peace of mind to families who have multi-generations under one medical plan,” as reported in the Nevada-based newspaper.
“A larger healthcare group typically has multiple locations and with that you will need more staff to work,” said John Lyons, clinic director for a healthcare group called Continuum Advanced Healthcare. “With a smaller group you have one-on-one type of care that can service the customer very well.”
