So, You Want to Be a Locum Tenens Physician

A locum tenens physician job offers many advantages including less time spent on administrative paperwork, the ability to choose your hours and the opportunity to explore a different practice setting. But finding the right locum tenens opportunities can be tedious.

Before you start your search for the perfect locum tenens position, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you want to relocate or do you want to explore other job opportunities where you currently live?
  • Are you looking for more hours or do you want fewer hours? A locum tenens position can enhance your income if you need more money for a house or for college tuition or it can be a way to cut back on hours if you want to spend more time at home with children or if you are approaching retirement.

Once you have determined your criteria, talk to a physician staffing consultant. A specialized physician staffing agency can streamline your search for a locum tenens job by identifying the openings that meet your criteria.
