Slide notes:There are a growing number of nonclinical roles for physicians in todays health care industry. Some are full-time positions, and others may be part time, allowing the physician to continue working in the clinical setting. Many physicians are involved in administration of hospitals, medical schools, clinics, and private practices. Teaching can be a full-time or part-time job; the clinician-teacher role is one that is being more widely recognized and rewarded. Research either in the laboratory or in clinical settings is another frequent role of physicians. Public health, including environmental health, epidemiology [ep-i-dee-mee- ol -uh-jee], and health promotion/disease prevention, is another option for physicians. With the large number of medical journals and medical books, physicians also assume the role of author and editor.
