I have a salaried physician friend who was recently told by her employer that she needs to up numbers, i.e. start seeing more patients. Because she wasn't seeing enough patients to earn her salary.
Truthfully, in the real world you have to see a lot of patients. In residency, I saw anywhere from 4-5 to 15-16 per day, depending on the rotation. As an attending, I average 20.
How many patients do you see each day?
