Taking the Next Step

Once you know what kind of job you want, you'll need to check out offerings and begin applying.

Dr. McLaughlin says this step does not come easy for a lot of doctors. "Physicians don't like asking for help," he says. He suggests asking friends and acquaintances for contacts and getting onto social networking sites, such as LinkedIn. Also check out Freelance MD, the blog on freelance work for physicians, and DocCafe, a physician hiring service that lists job opportunities.

If the part-time job you choose turns out to be very fulfilling, you may decide to expand the work or even make it a full-time career. "Part-time work can blossom into something more permanent and change your whole life," Dr. McLaughlin says.
