What is job sharing for doctors?

Two people share one job

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

Why job sharing?

Better work-life balance and staff retention

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.

Success stories

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
