NEJM CareerCenter Conversations: The Pros and Cons of Flexible Work Schedules

This is part 5 of a 6 part discussion series featuring women physicians.

Can you make a good living working less than 40 hours a week? Is this the best way to achieve work-life balance? What are the advantages of the various options (4-day week, nocturnist, telemedicine, etc.) We’ll speak with several physicians who have chosen this route and find out what they like and don’t like about it.

The NEJM CareerCenter is your trusted source for physician career resources and the latest physician job openings in the United States.

In a continuing effort to provide valuable resources, we’ve curated physicians with special career expertise and experience for the NEJM CareerCenter Conversations series. In conjunction with Medstro, we are excited to start a dialogue on career issues that impact the modern day physician.

For this special series spotlighting women physicians, the American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) joins us to lead the discussion on career issues that women in medicine face today.

Regardless of where you are in your career, we hope these topics spark productive and educational discussions.
