FAQ

Can you work from home as a doctor?

Yes. Depending on the type of medicine, doctors with a valid medical license can provide health care remotely to patients using various telecommunication technologies. Many physicians practice full-time telemedicine or use a hybrid work model of both in-person and virtual care. More physicians than ever are incorporating remote work into their practice as it provides flexibility and convenience for both themselves and their patients.

Every state has different rules and regulations governing physician-patient encounters in telemedicine, but all typically require physicians to be licensed in the state where the patient is located. Outside of having a medical license and learning to use the telemedicine platforms and technologies relevant to a specific role, there is usually no other special training required to practice virtual care as an MD or DO.

What jobs can MDs and DOs do from home?

As an MD or DO, your medical career doesn’t have to be confined to a hospital or clinic. There are growing part-time and full-time work opportunities for doctors to leverage their medical degrees while working from home.

Telemedicine is the most common work-from-home profession for doctors, which often involves diagnosing and prescribing medication for common conditions that don’t require an in-person evaluation. However, MDs and DOs can also find greater work-life balance by performing remote jobs ranging from medical writing and research to healthcare consulting and medical education.

As healthcare technology and telemedicine continue to expand, companies and organizations across industries are in need of physicians to deliver remote care and lend their medical expertise.

How much can telehealth physicians earn?

The average annual compensation for telemedicine physicians is $192,454.

Many telehealth physicians are paid per visit rather than a yearly salary. In some cases, certain telehealth physicians are paid by the hour or by the number of secure messages they send to patients or other providers.

Depending on the physician’s specialty and qualifications, pay per visit can range from $23 to $28*. This typically applies to internal medicine, family practice, and pediatrics. Telemedicine visits generally take between 3 to 15 minutes.

Remote physicians being paid by the hour can expect rates to range from $15 to $50 or more per hour. This means physicians can make between $30,000 and $500,000 annually, depending on specialization and how many hours they work per week.
