Physicians Forfeit Privacy

Just posted a 5-minute video highlighting Chapter 10, "Physician Privacy," of "The Locum life: A Physician's Guide to Locum Tenens." The application process for hospital privileges and state licenses compromises physician privacy to a significant degree. Privacy can also be trampled on in the workplace, as evidenced in this Medscape article. Further, did you know that once at work your emails may not be private?
