Younger ObGyns see lifestyle issues as priority
“Laborists, nocturnalists, weekendists. Will the ‘ists’ preserve the rewards of OB practice?” by Robert L. Barbieri, MD
Your readers might want to explore www.oblaborist.org, where they will find articles discussing the laborist model and other paradigms and an overview of laborists. All of the models are voluntary, so docs can use or bypass the program as they desire. This option allows physicians to weigh personal inconvenience and schedule conflicts against the desire to participate in the labor process.
