Practicing physicians receive 24 to 40 potential job opportunities a month, and a slightly higher proportion of residents get that much. How do you choose? Mergers and acquisitions in healthcare have increased significantly, as large systems buy up smaller practices and facilities, a resident may get one offer by “ABC healthcare,” and then find out by the time they graduate, that their contract has been acquired by an organization they don’t want to work with. A recent article in Forbes magazine brought to light that only a quarter of working doctors said they would choose the same practice setting again, compared with 50% a year ago.

Work Life Balance:
Are you wanting to live in one area of the country, but don’t like the work options close to home? Do you just want to add a dimension to your current practice, create an additional revenue stream? Do you want to partially retire from a hectic schedule; are you attending to elderly parents, special needs children? Locum Tenens can be the answer. Take care of your priorities!
Tired of the Politics:
Free yourself of the politics in the workplace. Hospital politics are one of the top ten dissatisfactions reported by physicians. In surveys, most physicians say the best part of their jobs is taking care of people. They believe this is the key to coping with the stresses of contemporary medicine: identifying what is important to you and what you believe in. Concentrate on being a healer!
More and more doctors are finding that they suffer from a job description which is more like punching a clock on an assembly line. Change of environment can be a tonic for the brain. Stepping out of a rut can help remind you why you became a medical provider to begin with. Help refresh yourself!
Other providers use Locum Tenens to have the freedom to participate in medical mission work, to cover gaps, gain perspective because of a recent divorce, develop plans due to a recent marriage, or to just create more work-life balance. The list goes on and on.
