For those in pursuing careers in the medical field, completing your education is the first of many large and cumbersome hurdles to clear. While the feeling of accomplishment one may feel after being awarded whichever degrees or certifications one pursued is well earned, the endeavor is far from over.

One of the more promising healthcare employment positions for 2014 belongs to the hospitalist.

Financial pros include a lower cost of living and the positions in a small town usually offer a greater salary and compensation package as an incentive for relocating to the community. (more…)
