Job-sharing for doctors is a work arrangement where two employees are sharing one full-time job. For instance, each job sharing partner is working 55%. The 5% overlap is used to meet at the workplace to handover patients
Even though a third* of all doctors in Switzerland would like to work part-time, hospitals rarely offer part time jobs. Job-sharing is a solution by which both doctors and hospitals benefit.

As junior doctors we shared for two years one full time role at the Kantonsspital Chur. Each of us was employed at 55% with independent contracts. We worked on a weekly basis to attend alternately the Senior Physician visit and make the most of training programs. Before the weekly swap we met for half a day to handover in-patients and exchange thoughts. Due to this job-sharing arrangement we were able to balance family and work

You should ask your employer if job-sharing would be possible. There might be someone in your team that would like to work part-time as well.
First of all, the chemistry between you needs to be right. You have to complement each other, value the work of your partner and support each other.
To answer this and similar questions, reading this document will give you further clarity. The legal bases of job-sharing in Switzerland are comprehensively explained in this document.
