On any given day, locum tenens assignments are available in most, if not all, 50 states. However, before a physician can start an assignment, he or she must be licensed to work in that state. (A common exception to this rule is government assignments, such as VA hospitals, which typically accept all state licenses.)
If you’re looking to work in a state where you’re not yet licensed, Weatherby Healthcare consultants can help walk you through the process.
To begin, gather and organize the following documents:
Whether you’re switching to a job in a new state or looking to supplement income with locum tenens opportunities across the country, licensing is part of the job search process. There’s no need to be overwhelmed by it. Keeping your documents and records accessible makes a big difference.
Working with a staffing agency also helps. Look for an agency that has experience in licensing and has a large enough support staff to ensure they can help minimize your need to be involved. You should also consider looking for an agency that has relationships with state boards across the country. This creates efficiencies and can in many cases expedite your licensure.
If you have any questions about state licenses or required documentation, reach out to a Weatherby consultant. He or she can help you throughout the entire process.
