Private, Academic and Hybrid Practices. What’s the Difference?

Jan. 3, 2018

Dr. John Hanson, from Carolinas HealthCare System, provides insight into “hybrid practice” and how it compares to private/academic practice.

In order to be a successful gastroenterologist you need to deliver high-value care, demonstrate quality and maximize revenue. These goals may be achieved differently when working in private, academic or hybrid practices.

Dr. John Hanson, MD, AGAF, outlined the key differences between each type of practice with specific attention to ownership options, type of employment, salary considerations and possibility for ancillary income during the 2017 AGA Regional Practice Skills Workshop held in Pinehurst, North Carolina, a program of the AGA Trainee and Early Career Committee. Regardless of which type of practice you are considering, Dr. Hanson recommends you do the following when looking for a job:

  • Maximize your retirement benefits.
  • Compare health insurance.
  • Determine whether malpractice costs covered are claims made or occurrence made.
