MacDonald says the v A also provides telehealth. "To follow up on someone who was discharged, I can call up a video visit, [which easily] fits into my day and doesn't require the vet to drive in to see us," MacDonald says, adding that in FY 2016, more than 2 million patient visits were conducted via telehealth. Correctional medicine Correctional health care is another growing opportunity for physicians. It may sound like a difficult work environment, but Mohammad Khan, a board-certified psychiatrist in Dallas, says that providing medical care in correctional facilities offers variety and new challenges. "It wa s qu ite rewa rd i ng to diagnose and treat them," he says. "The combination of personality disorders with mental illness was quite high in adults. In the juvenile facilities, the biggest problems were lacking a stable home structure." Khan found correctional services to be vigilant when it came to ensuring physician safety, and he enjoyed working alongside other medical professionals, such as counselors and therapists. Federally Qualified Health Centers Physicians can also find enriching gover n ment oppor t u n ities at Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQ h Cs). These clinics and health centers provide comprehensive care to uninsured and underserved populations. And because it is often financially and logistically difficult for their patients to access medical care, FQ h C doctors quickly learn to wear many hats. "From a professional perspective, [you'll encounter] many medical and psychosocial issues that may be less commonly seen in other practice settings," says Masters, who worked at an urban FQ h C setting early in his career. "Since centers are required to provide comprehensive care, you'll work closely with other medical professionals." He adds: "It is [also] nice to know that you are helping in a place where good care may be difficult to find."
