When you take a locum tenens assignment,
flexibility becomes a powerfully liberating
advantage. Assignments range from single
shift to multiple weeks or months. It's
completely up to you. The common
denominator is that you'll be adding valuable
experience to your career.
If you’ve felt the pinch of having more patients to see and not enough time to see them, you’re not alone. Today’s healthcare system is overworked. And providers across the country are feeling it.
In addition to full-time staff, hospitals need to fill temporary gaps when a doctor goes on vacation or when they’re searching for a full-time candidate. Locum tenens can also be used for increased patient demand as well as for battling burnout, a growing concern in healthcare.
Locum tenens is an attractive work option for doctors at all levels.
Watch Dr. Gray, D.O., share his experience of working locum tenens in underserved communities.
One thing people might not realize about locum tenens jobs...is how much you’re valued and how grateful the staff is that you’re there. It’s so important to have a locum tenens physician. I initially thought of locums as a go-between service, but now I realize that these doctors fill an essential role in many places—sometimes for many years. It’s very gratifying to come together as physicians, and I feel valued to be part of a team and in a critical role. I’m so glad I decided to do locum tenens."
—Dr. Marilyn Berko"
I gain valuable experience and supplement my income when I take assignments, usually 10 days a month, but I’m able to continue working at my practice part-time. Locum tenens is really convenient and a win-win situation for me and the other facilities. It’s easy to take those calls. I have the freedom to pursue what I want to do and time in my schedule for new opportunities."
