Doctor Mom: Getting Back To Medicine After Maternity Leave

Many physicians want to return to work on either a full-time or part-time basis after life changes such as retirement or maternity leave.

Chances are that caring for a newborn hasn't left you much time to peruse the physicians listings. But physician recruitment companies can help, whether you're looking for jobs for retired physicians or jobs for part-time mothers. Talk to a physician staffing consultant about your goals for post-baby physician work:

  • Hours: Do you want to work part-time? Or do you want to work on some weekends when your spouse is at home with the baby?
  • Location: Do you want a short commute? Or would you take a longer commute to a hospital or medical practice that has on-site child care?
  • Salary: Do you have salary requirements to cover child care expenses? Or are you willing to trade less money for more flexibility?

A specialized physician staffing agency can help you transition back to work with physician part-time jobs or full-time jobs that meet your needs as a parent and physician.
