Increased income

Locums work is a great way to supplement your full-time salary or earn more on average. Many assignments pay higher rates than permanent positions.

Flexibility and control

You choose when and where you want to work. You have more control over your schedule and more freedom to do the things you love with the people who matter in your life.

Variety and skill development

Locums offers a wide variety of healthcare settings, so you gain valuable experience with new systems, equipment, and patient populations to develop a broader skill set.

Work through transitions

Locums provides flexible work when transitioning to a new role, after residency or fellowship, or into retirement.

Reduced administrative tasks

Locums physicians are typically relieved of administrative tasks, such as billing and coding. You can focus on patient care.

Travel opportunities

Short-term assignments are a great opportunity to travel and experience new places without long-term commitment.
