Internal Medicine Careers

Building your ideal internal medicine career comes with challenges. Many physicians are stuck in jobs with exhausting hours, unreasonable administrative burdens, unrealistic patient workloads and more – all limiting their ability to drive positive outcomes for their patients. Physicians feel forced to focus on quantity over quality, all while payments remain unpredictable, reimbursements are decreasing, and salaries aren’t growing.

Physicians are leaving traditional “jobs” in clinical practice to carve out “careers” where they can connect with their patients, improve the quality of care for healthcare systems, and find the right balance to enjoy their own lives.

Dr Sanjay Bhatia saw those opportunities were few and far between, which is why he started First Docs – the destination workplace for internal medicine physicians.

First Docs Physician Careers

Working for First Docs is unlike traditional physician employment working for big health systems. Many physicians find themselves stretched too thin. You might feel disengaged and disconnected from your patients, and this may affect your ability to provide the best care for your patients. You might have become a physician to make a difference in people’s lives, but our current healthcare system makes that challenging.

Working At First Docs

First Docs empowers physicians to have the freedom and flexibility to focus on what matters – treating patients. Our care model is more focused, so you have the time to dedicate your skills to a small set of patients. As a result, you build relationships with the people you care for, and you get to see the positive outcomes. Reduce hospitalizations, connect with your patients and help people return to their lives.

We’re a destination workplace because, here, you can see the difference you make. Your patients are in good hands, and you can feel excited to go to work. If traditional healthcare practices have left much to be desired, join the First Docs team.
