Concept Doctors basically aim at attracting the group of medical graduates mostly residing in cities with rich experience gained through their services.
Their services can be utilized in primary care hospitals in both urban and rural areas. Since they are retired and would like to enjoy the fruits of ageing without accompanying stress, they can be put on shorter duties such as 5hrs per day/night.
Government may utilize their services for rural PHC’s on a temporary basis or they can be used in the various health programs and projects.
Concept doctors are mature, sympathetic, knowledgeable and accurate. The corporate hospitals may utilise their services to fill in gaps when the duty doctors are not available.
We imitate the west for best in healthcare but not in terms of utilization of human resources. The trend of concept doctors can be used by future administrators to bridge the gaps in the workforce.
