Hey! Not sure what kind of opportunities you're thinking of pursuing but there's ton of self-employed folks in the creative design fields. I know many designers, illustrators, and animators who are either freelancing, working based on contracts, or self-employed.

If you are considering a career as a self-employed physician, I would steer you away from a surgical specialty. We have relatively frequent emergencies such that it is difficult to take call all the time as a solo practitioner. Also, we are in the operating room half of the week, and this means that your office is empty and your staff is not busy.

Many dermatologists join small groups and are their own bosses. This is the most common set up for a Derm practice. Starting a practice from scratch is also possible, but it is a lot of work and riskier/expensive.
