Like title says -I am FM doing outpatient and I am offered to do some minor admitting to a hospital that’s 10 min away from where I live. I am just out of residency and not sure if this is feasible or will I burn out? I think the call will be 24 hr q4 with heavy on weekends since I am going to be the fresh addition. In terms of managing inpatient- I did inpatient heavy residency with heavy icu -often alone so I know I can manage most admissions but of course I am not on critical care/hospitalist level.
I do miss inpatient already a lot but I love my life now. It’s nice and quiet and I would like to start dating and probably not spending every weekend in a hospital. I know if I have unstable patients I am going to be in a hospital or in front of computer all night long. Average daily admissions are gonna be 4-5 people as hospital has a hospitalist service so we admit our own patients. Extra money would not hurt but not at the expense of patient care or burnout. So it isn’t an issue.
Thank you for reading and for advice!
