There’s never been a better time to begin a career in OB hospitalist medicine.
Because OBHG has the best clinical team in the industry (we are biased) and focuses only on obstetrics – we were able to maintain stability and even thrive during the pandemic. We kept clinician hours, pay and benefits consistent and continued to add new hospital partners. We are proud of that and grateful.
Here are a few additional reasons physicians choose to work with us:
More peace of mind
The pandemic was obviously a stressful time for everyone, but especially for medical professionals. We offer OB/GYNs who have become weary of private practice a career focused on patient care – without the business concerns. We also take care of your liability insurance including tail coverage.
OB careers with flexibility – in roles, schedules, and location
We want our doctors and clinicians to design their careers around their lives, not the other way around. When working in hospitals for OBHG, you choose full-time, part-time, or backup work. If you need to move across the country you have the option to transfer to a hospital in your new city if OBHG has a hospital partner in that location. Learn more about our clinician roles that are available nationwide.
We also offer sought-after national and regional travel positions for OB/GYNs. These OB jobs are ideal for doctors looking to explore where they may want to begin their careers after residency. Hospitalists who join our prestigious Diplomat program journey to different parts of the U.S. to launch new programs and get L&D teams in partner hospitals up to speed. OBHG offers a similar, traveler position as well that focuses on a more regional scope.
Listen to Dr. George Kingsley discuss what working as a Diplomat is actually like on the Obstetrics Podcast.
Hospital leadership positions
Looking to move into leadership? Perfect – we have a track for that. Many OBHG physicians who joined us as hospitalists have advanced to Site Director or Medical Director of Operations roles.
Listen to Dr. Renee Lockey discuss her own transition to leadership on the Obstetrics Podcast.
OB hospitalist roles
Our hospitalists also serve in leadership capacities for hospital committees, quality initiatives, local non-profit boards, or professional associations like SOGH, ACOG, or ACOOG. Some programs provide the opportunity to train students and residents as well.
If you’re a new grad there’s a place for you here – we encourage skilled early-career physicians to apply for our hospitalist positions.
Listen to Dr. Angela Kim discuss why she chose to begin her OBHG career right after residency.
Certified nurse-midwife jobs
We also hire certified nurse-midwives, depending on the program, and expect to increase our number of employed CNMs in the future.
Safer care and increased access for women
OBHG founder and obstetrician Chris Swain, MD, created the original OB/GYN hospitalist model 15 years ago to ensure that every pregnant woman who presented to the hospital would be seen by an experienced obstetrician regardless of her personal circumstances.
Today our hospitalists are on hand 24/7 to do triage, support nurses and residents in labor and delivery units and handle any obstetrical emergency that comes through the door. Lightening the load and reducing burnout for local private-practice OB/GYNs (who decide on a case-by-case basis how they will partner with OBHG physicians) helps reduce risk and make care safer for everyone.
Unmatched physician resources and support
OBHG strives to be a truly physician-centered organization. We offer unique resources – for continuing education, clinical and social networking, confidential peer-to-peer counseling, awards and recognition, and volunteer opportunities such as the chance to join group medical mission trips.
Our custom-designed internal site, Ob Exchange, offers posts about what your fellow hospitalists are up to, an active private discussion forum, helpful administrative information, and more – all included in one convenient online hub.
So is 2022 the year you’ll become an OBHG hospitalist? We say yes. Apply for a career in obstetrics today and get the freedom, flexibility, and work-life balance you need.
