60% of Physicians Still in Private Practice

According to a report by the American Medical Association the percentage of physicians who were practice owners decreased only 8% points from 2008-2012.  Becker's Spine Review has a recently published article stating 60% of physicians continue to work in practices wholly-owned by physicians.

So much media attention has been dedicated to the trend towards Hospital Employment and the dramatic decrease in the private practice employment model for physicians.  It's refreshing to see this data that there still is a place for physicians who respond better in a private practice model.
