Is Locum Tenens right for you?
Every physician is different: different specialties, different ages, different backgrounds and different preferences. The beauty of Locum Tenens is that it accommodates every physician, from a father of four who wants more time with his family to a new grad who wants to broaden her horizons and gain new, valuable experience. Taking a Locum Tenens position gives you the rare opportunity to take control of your own schedule and choose your own practice settings; you pick where you work, when you work, and how long you work for.
Additionally, Locum Tenens positions gives you a chance to “try before you buy.” You are under no obligation to continue working after your assignment is completed, offering you the freedom and flexibility to create your own, completely unique career path. However, should you love your assignment and want to make it a permanent one, there is a good chance you’ll have the opportunity to do so. We very often extend our assignments, and in many cases our Providers have the option of transitioning from locum tenens (temporary) work into a permanent position. In that regard, temporary staffing positions are a great way to get your foot in the door and take the next step in your career.
Are you a new Physician?
If you have recently completed your medical residency or fellowship training, a Locum Tenens placement may help you decide where to begin your practice. It is a daunting task to choose your first job, as it may very well define the rest of your medical career. Locum Tenens positions will help get rid of that “what if” feeling. You get the chance to try a variety of settings and find out, for a fact, what you like and what you don’t. Plus, the additional experience will increase your appeal to future employers; physicians who have the ability to work in different areas of the country are in high demand today, due to the continuing shortage of skilled professionals, particularly in primary care, family care and internal medicine.
