The Modern Way To Be Employed

“Employment Lite” is a hybrid employment model that mirrors most of the components of employment without full integration. Employment is the fullest form of alignment among hospitals and physicians, while employment lite signifies a high level of physician-hospital alignment that falls just short of full employment.
It is formalized by a professional services agreement that is specific to this arrangement. Under a PSA, a physician (or medical group) remains independent (i.e., not employed by the hospital) and provides professional services in the hospital or at a hospital clinic. Locums Tenens has been one of the more common PSA arrangements that healthcare employers use to tap into the professional services of doctors.

The PSA structure allows for many of the same benefits and elements of employment, while the physician remains an independent contractor rather than an employee. Corporate citizenship and organizational governance can be built into the PSA such that the doctor functions in nearly the same manner as his/her fully employed peers

I'm Tod Stillson MD

I am a full-time family physician who has experienced the full spectrum of independent practice to hospital employment. During my nearly 30 years in healthcare, I have learned that “I don’t want to run my own practice.” But I have also been frustrated by the constant barrage of limitations that corporate employment places on creative, innovative, and hard-working physicians.

After reflecting on all my options, I came to the realization that something had to change in professional life, or I was going to get burned out.

This began my journey towards a comprehensive business structure that would help my career and restore my passion for the practice of medicine. A simple change returned the pleasure of going to work every day. I created my own Professional Corporation and transitioned to an “employment lite” contract, also called a PSA.

This discovery revolutionized my personal and professional life. It restored my control over my medical world, increased my income substantially, and helped me achieve financial independence.

I have made it my mission to share this pathway with my peers. Medicine is such a special calling, and with physician burnout at an all-time high, I know my discoveries can help restore your professional well-being through enhanced personal and professional autonomy
