Partnership is dead, long live partnerships


Young GPs are smart cookies. Yes, they want partnerships to survive......but they don’t want to be partners themselves. And who can blame them? Who wouldn’t prefer a salaried/locum position (with defined workload and salary) over the financially toxic rollercoaster and bottomless workload pit of a partnership? Of course, this only works if idiotic older GPs are prepared to cling to the partnership mast and clean up the crappy jobs because the buck stops with them. The trick is to be employed by these misguided partners, not some faceless conglomerate who will expect you to dance to their tune, rather than the pathetically grateful drowning small partnership that will be ecstatic for any help you can give them.
