Preventive Medicine Physicians

Advancement Prospects

Preventive medicine physicians advance by acquiring more experience in their medical practice. Throughout the years they build their practice by acquiring more patients, increasing their income, and developing a good reputation in the preventive medicine field. They enhance their knowledge and skills by continually taking classes, attending conferences, and getting certification. They may also pursue an advanced degree in a subspecialty or another medical field. Those who work in a managed-care setting or for a large group or corporation can advance by opening their own private practice. Some preventive medicine physicians may become directors of a laboratory, managed-care facility, hospital department, or medical school program. Some may move into hospital administration positions.
