Dr. Philip Krick was finishing his fellowship when he learned about locum tenens jobs from a friend.
“Having access to a network of jobs available has been great. Since I’m right out of training, it’s hard to know what types of jobs are open,” he says. “Finding the right locum tenens jobs is, I think, the biggest challenge — but [my consultant] has found multiple job opportunities in my field.”
Though he’s only been working locum tenens a short time, Dr. Krick is quick to recommend the career.
“Everyone has their own reasons for trying locum tenens, whether it’s scheduling flexibility, the chance to pick up work for short periods of time, or more autonomy,” he says. “Locum tenens assignments allow you to test drive to see if you want to stay at a place permanently.”

When Dr. Imran Jamil was burning out at his full-time practice, he turned to locum tenens for a less rigid schedule — and discovered that Weatherby Healthcare’s teams would help him with paperwork and search for jobs based on what he was looking for.
“It’s nice to have a person to speak to who knows what to expect and to have someone take care of your hotel and car and credentialing for the assignment,” Dr. Jamil expresses. “My license was expired, and the licensing team even helped me get it renewed. You often don’t have any time to gather all the information, and it’s nice to have an advocate who can take care of everything.”
Dr. Jamil says he’s “100 percent satisfied” with his consultant and already suggests temporary jobs to colleagues.
“Try locum tenens at least once,” he says. “My experience was wonderful.”
