Patrick C. Alguire, MD, FACP, Director, Education and Career Development, American College of Physicians discusses why physicians may want to work part-time and gives constructive options for the physician to consider.

Summary:
1. Physicians may wish to work part-time to spend more time with their children, to lead into retirement or to pursue other interests
2.Options for physicians to consider are cutting hours, working as an employee and naming their own hours, or relocating to an area that is physician-poor.
3. Physicians should try a new career before they completely leave clinical practice to ensure they are suited to the new path they have chosen.
