For Physicians

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES FOR
EXCEPTIONAL PHYSICIANS.

Our doctors make a real difference in rural America.

Rural Physicians Group is a mission-driven, forward-thinking hospitalist solution to the healthcare crisis facing rural communities across the United States.

Leveraging our expansive network of licensed, experienced hospitalists and surgicalists, we provide rural hospitals with full-time, dedicated physicians to achieve continuity of care and improve patient outcomes for rural communities across the country. If you have considered practicing rural hospital medicine, Rural Physicians Group is an attractive career path.

AN ATTRACTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO LOCUM TENENS

Many of our physicians have joined Rural Physicians Group directly from a locum tenens environment. While there are similarities to locum tenens—independent contractor, attractive compensation, flexible scheduling—the differences are significant and critical to understand.

Rural Physicians Group offers long-term stability that locum tenens jobs simply cannot. In many ways, our model is the best of both worlds, where you can make your own schedule and maintain stability and continuity in your position.

With this stability comes community engagement and appreciation. Many of our physicians stay at the same hospital for years, becoming a true member of the community.

More and more small-town hospitals are seeking out Rural Physicians Group as the solution to their long-term financial vitality. You will be empowered to revitalize the medical capabilities of the hospital by offering access to care within the community.

Focus on rural medicine. If you prefer a hands-on, personal approach to care, then you will fall in love with practicing at rural hospitals.

PRACTICE RURAL HOSPITAL MEDICINE - HOW IT WORKS

After joining the Rural Physicians Group and completing our physician assessment process, we work with you to find hospitals and schedules that fit your needs. Typically, you will be one of three or four rotating full-time hospitalists that provide care. As the sole hospitalist on the clock during your shift, you will be on call 24 hours during your assignment, staying on site in comfortable quarters.

Rural Physicians Group provides physicians with a competitive daily stipend, with the other key source of your compensation coming directly from patient billings. At Rural Physicians Group, you keep what you earn. This is one of the most attractive aspects of our model. And as an independent contractor, you can take advantage of the tax benefits to owning your own business, without the burden of typical overhead costs.

When your shift is over, you return to your home and family and enjoy the freedom that comes with the Rural Physicians Group model. You can work as many or as few shifts as you want.
