Advancement Prospects

Physicians who work in a managed-care setting or for a large group or corporation can advance by opening a private practice. The average physician in private practice does not advance in the accustomed sense of the word. Their progress consists of advancing in skill and understanding, in numbers of patients, and in income. They may be made a fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology or elected to an important office in the American Gastroenterological Association, American Medical Association, or American Osteopathic Association. Teaching and research positions may also increase a physician's status.
