Any NP's do medical house calls or MD2U?

Specialties NP


Just curious to see if anyone works as an NP doing the "medical house calls" (primary care at the patients home?) I recently received a phone call from MD2U program manager to interview to potentially be taken on for one of my clinical rotations.

I was wondering what all your duties entail? How many patients you see each day? What do you find rewarding and/or frustrating about the position? Do you feel the pay is the same or more/less than a traditional clinic position?

Thanks for any input! =)

Dr. Scharmaine Lawson-Baker in New Orleans is well known for her work in this field. I think if you look up her story you will find several links about her practice. I don't know anything about MD2U, or the other organizations that also do medical house calls. I'm sure there is quite a variety on how they are structured, financial reimbursement, etc. I know I read about one NP, I think he was in FL, who had a driver, did all his documentation while he was being driven from appt to appt and made quite a excellent salary. I would guess the actual patient visits and treatment process would be far less variable from practice to practice though.

Thanks for the link I will totally be checking it out! It sounds like a great option for elderly and/or housebound patients. I think it would be a very rewarding and fun career! =)
