Emme's post got me to thinking about something I've had on my mind, granted it may be a bit premature, nevertheless the more information one has the better decision he/she should be able to make. There are two main hospitals in my town that I want to work for after graduation.
One is a group that provides anesthesia coverage to the hospital and its clinics, etc. The other is owned by the hospital. About ten years ago there was a big falling out, so the hospital "purchased" the group and everyone are hospital employees. There are big differences in call, hours and benefits. Overall pay, is about the same, but the benies are HUGELY different. Does anyone have opinions on how it is to work for each type and the environment, etc?
