"Many female physicians want more flexibility in their career, job sharing allows them to work part-time and spend more time with their families", said Sethina Edwards, founder of MomMD, LLC. "Finding a job share position or partner is not easy, the MomMD Job Share Network provides one centralized online resource for finding available positions and connecting with potential partners at no cost to the physician."
The Job Share Network enables a physician to submit a partner request or available job share opportunity to be viewed by other physicians on the Internet. An interested physician then contacts them directly to see if the job or person is a suitable match, rather like a classified ad. Two 'matched' physicians could then choose to present themselves as a 'job share package' to physician jobs advertised elsewhere, or share a position in which one of them is already employed.
"We are optimistic that the Job Share Network will enable more physicians to job share. Until the launch of this resource there was no central place for physicians interested in job sharing to find partners or positions. Member feedback on balancing a medical career with a family indicated that many employers were open to job sharing but only if the physician had done most of the hard work of finding a potential partner. The Job Share Network makes it easier to connect interested physicians together," said Edwards. The Job Share Network can be accessed at www.mommd.com/jsindex.shtml.
