Slide 5 :
Types of practice arrangements Before addressing the key pieces that shape a job selection process, let’s review some of the basics including: Practice arrangements that are generally available Considerations that may influence your decisions What you need to learn about the practice(s) you are interested in pursuing

Slide 9 :
Full-Time Practice Pediatricians will find that there are a growing number of full-time practice arrangements. Some of the common full-time practice options include: Flextime Telecommuting Compressed workweek
Slide 10 :
Full-time Options--Flextime Flextime provides a flexible starting and/or ending time for the work day. Advantages include: Preserves visibility on the job Access by “your” patients Can arrange hours around your family or personal activities Practice can offer extended hours for others
Slide 11 :
Full-time Options--Telecommuting Telecommuting is working at home during part of your scheduled hours of work. Does not work for patient care Can be an option for administrative/support services May work for some aspects of academic medicine
Slide 12 :
Full-time Options—Compressed work week Compressed work week involves shortening the number of days worked. Advantages: Full day off May mean you can commute outside of rush hours Time for other activities that take place during normal work hours (running errands, scheduling repairs to home, take part in school activities) Disadvantages: Must have stamina for longer work days Often day off cannot be a Monday or Friday Can cause resentment if you do have Monday or Friday off because you always have a 3-day weekend and those days are often the most busy in terms of patient care
Slide 13 :
Part-time Practice Arrangements Survey data from the AAP indicates that a growing number of residents are interested in part-time or reduced hour practice options. These options include: Shortened work day Shortened work week Job sharing Locums
Slide 14 :
Employment Status: Pediatricians (self-designated) Percentage of Pediatricians Male Female Source: AAP Division of Health Policy Research, Periodic Survey of Fellows, #54, 2003 P<.001 for M v F Full-time Part-time
Slide 15 :
Part-time Practice Arrangements In 2003, 17% of pediatricians worked part-time, averaging 32 hours/week Shortened work day– 5-7 hours/day Shortened work week – usually 4 days/week Less than 4 days/week (can be problematic for patients)
Slide 16 :
Part-time: Job sharing Job sharing arrangements usually involve 2 persons sharing one full-time position. May work best if: Cooperative, give and take approach Similar/complimentary skills Similar work habits– on time, details, organized Flexible to trade time around How to find someone to job share: Look at current workplace for someone with similar needs Talk with placement offices and recruiters Place an ad in a professional newsletter, magazine, journal Network
Slide 17 :
Part-time: Locum Tenens Locum Tenens comes from the Latin word meaning “to hold the place of.” Locum physicians fill temporary positions. Advantages: Can help you find out what the perfect job for you may because you can work in a variety of settings for a short period of time Can decide to pick a region or group where you want to work Perfect for someone who is comfortable with not having their “own” patient groups.
Slide 18 :
Special Considerations: Things to think about when deciding what type of job will work for you For women pediatricians the most common concerns include: Breastfeeding issues Compensation (what to expect) Negotiation skills Time management (How will I manage both my professional and personal roles?)
Slide 19 :
Special Considerations: Breastfeeding For pediatricians who desire to work and breastfeed consider the following: Part-time work or job sharing may mean a shorter work day and less need for breast pumping while at work Talk with other women who have worked and breastfeed their child(ren) Compressed work week may be less desirable as more hours worked may equal a minimum of two breast pumping times Telecommuting for part of your work week may be ideal if parts of your workload are suited for off-sight work If no option is available other than a long work day consider nighttime, prior to work feedings, breasts will adjust. Do this 1-2 weeks prior to your return to work. following work arrangements may be helpful
Slide 20 :
Special Considerations: Compensation What to consider: Find out about average compensation in your area Contract negotiations should be reviewed by an attorney Review termination clauses Insurance Restrictive covenants Expected services to perform Review sample contracts (available on Web site such as www.ama-assn.org/go/yps or conduct a Web site search for sample contracts)
Slide 21 :
Special Considerations: Time Management It is important to schedule in time for yourself. You need time to recharge too. Communicate with family members & significant others regarding changes in your work schedule Make time to spend with family & friends Highly recommend vacation times Schedule time to do the things you love like reading, hobbies and involvement in organized medicine
Slide 22 :
Finding a Job that’s Right for You There is a host of basic and not so basic information that can help you make an informed decision. Some things to consider: Weigh your options and identify what you can/cannot live without How far are you willing to move? Salary range Benefits Working weekends Moving expenses Signing bonus Call schedule/triage call center Office location Buy into the practice
Slide 23 :
Determine what you want in a position: Geographic location Family/partner considerations: Employment Education opportunities Cultural Entertainment Opportunity for research/teaching Time- call amount, time off Compatibility with partners/practice style Compensation
Slide 24 :
Where do you see yourself in the future? What do you see yourself doing 1 year, 5 years, 10 years from now? What is your financial plan? Calculate the actual decrease in money if you are thinking about reducing your work hours Some items may actually be lower if working less hours– child care, meals out, commuting costs How supportive is your partner, family members and others impacted by your job choice? Think about possible extra stress and/or less stress on those important to you. How will this impact your work relationships?
Slide 25 :
Organizing Your Search Keep a record of each possible opportunity you come across Examine the pros and cons of working with a recruiter Network- most jobs are found through friends and colleagues Keep an up-to-date cover letter and CV Research organizations, job possibilities and locations on the Web Find out what types of career related resources your state and local medical society offers
