A new study published in the Archives of Surgery shows that self-employed surgeons in private practice have decreased significantly from 2001 to 2009.

Approximately 48 percent of surgeons reported self-employment in 2001, which dropped to 33 percent by 2009. Now, around 68 percent of surgeons self-identify as employed, according to the report.

From 2006 to 2011, the number of surgeons in full-time hospital employment increased 32 percent, with younger and female surgeons favoring hospital employment over large group practices, according to the report.
