A 10-year look at hospitalist work hours

April 2018

In looking at 10 years of data from the Today’s Hospitalist Compensation & Career survey, one very good piece of news jumps out: Hospitalists reported working significantly fewer shifts per month in 2017 than in 2008 while seeing their pay rise rapidly.

Need to factor in that the workload per shift has significantly increased in the past decade so it takes longer to finish the shift.

I’d be curious to know if these are all 12-hour shifts, as that makes a difference. Our hospitalist group works 17, however they are 8-10 hour shifts.
