A doctor who was joined a hosptial’s staff and was given clinical privileges and performed surgery at the hospital was an independent contractor, not an employee and so could not state a Title VII claim for discrimination in employment against the hospital.  He was on call with the hospital only 5 days a month, and his earnings from the hospital constituted only 10% of his total income.  The doctor was free to conduct his own medical practice the rest of the month.  Each of the doctor’s contracts with the hospital stated he was an independent ocntractor. That the doctor was highly skilled, used the hospital’s equipment and was subject to its regulations while operating at the hospital was given little weight since all those factors are always present for a doctor with hospital privileges.
