Approximately half of the physicians in the United States are employees rather than private practitioners. While most work for physician-controlled businesses, these increasingly resemble nonmedical businesses rather than medical partnerships. This is a recent shift from the historical domination of medicine by private practitioners. Physician employees must balance their duty to the company against their duties to the state and to individual patients. Medical law and professional standards based on a private practice model provide little guidance for employee physicians.
