Pressures on surgeons have reached an all-time high thanks to sicker patients, staffing challenges, increasing responsibilities and heavy administrative burdens. Understandably, fed-up surgeons are interested in moving to part-time surgery to achieve a better work-life balance. Part-time surgeons are the foundation of our business at NexGen Surgical, and we’re here to assure you that it is entirely possible to let go of your bustling urban practice in exchange for a slower pace—without taking a pay cut.
You Don’t Have to Leave Medicine to Find Happiness
A recent Medscape survey found that one out of five physicians has considered leaving their career in favor of a nonclinical position, with many pointing to a desire to work fewer hours as the reason for doing so. We’re here to assure you: You don’t have to leave medicine or clinical care to find reduced hours and fulfilling work. Surgeons who work with NexGen work two weeks out of the month and are not on call during their time off. Rather than waste your skills and talents as a surgeon in a non-clinical position, put your abilities to work for patients who need them most—for fewer hours per month.
Considerations for Transitioning to Reduced Hours in Surgery
At NexGen, our job is to help busy surgeons transition to reduced hours in surgery and a higher quality of life. For most surgeons, compensation and scheduling flexibility are the two most important considerations for moving to part-time surgery. Regarding compensation, we offer highly competitive pay with a two-on/two-off schedule. Surgeons can leave their busy practices to join our team without taking a pay cut. As for flexibility, we believe in your time off being just that—your time. You will never be on call during your time off and will have the flexibility necessary to pursue a greater work-life balance.
NexGen Can Help You Find Your Next Job
Our team will work hard to help extend your career by finding you an opportunity that meets your exact desires and requirements. Once placed in a position, you can focus on doing what you love—practicing medicine—while we handle the staffing, billing, payroll, enrollment, negotiations and other administrative tasks. Caring for patients becomes exponentially more enjoyable when you are not burdened by the administrative minutia of running a practice. As an added benefit of working with NexGen, you do not have to relocate since you will only work two weeks per month. Just let us know when, where and how you want to practice medicine, and we will work to customize a position accordingly.
Other Perks of Part-Time Surgery
Ultimately, the biggest perk of transitioning to part-time surgery is more time to enjoy yourself outside the hospital. Working with NexGen allows you to work in a geographic location that suits your needs and desires. Enjoy trying new restaurants, shopping at new stores and cheering on local sports teams. Pick up an old hobby, spend time outdoors or take advantage of the peace and quiet to read a good book. Our surgeons make the most of their two weeks per month working AND their weeks off.
