23% of U.S. pediatricians are working part time

From the NYTimes:

More and more pediatricians are working part time, a new survey by the American Academy of Pediatrics reports.

Almost one in four, or 23%, reported they were on a part-time schedule in 2006, up from 15% just six years earlier and 11% in 1993.

Part-time doctors spent about 14.3 fewer hours a week delivering direct patient care than their full-time colleagues and reported greater levels of satisfaction with their work and personal and family lives.
