Can a private practice doctor legally go on holiday 6 months a year?

If the doctor owns a clinic, can he work hard for the first half of the year, and travel the 2nd half? Or, can he only do so if he has a colleague cover for him?

Why would he have to have anyone cover for him? What law requires him to work at all?

  • Most of my doctors go out of the country for 1-2 months out of the year… they serve on mission trips to places that don’t have good medical care & donate their time

    they always tell us before they go & they always have recommendation on who to see in their absence if the need arises while they are gone

    but they don’t have someone covering for themReferences :
