Below are some specific companies that hire physicians who work from home. However, overall the outlook for work-at-home physician jobs isn’t as good as some other medical jobs from home. The education, experience, and mindset required to become a physician mean that the pay scale and responsibility level of many work-at-home jobs simply aren’t enough. Many physicians who choose to work at home, do so for personal life-balance reasons and work in part-time positions.
For those looking for a... full-time, nonclinical physician job that can be telecommuted, your best bet is probably to contact a healthcare recruiter.
In addition to the companies below, if you are an MD or have a Ph.D. in a medical field, another option for working at home is as an online college faculty member or subject matter expert. For more information on this avenue, read about online teaching jobs.
