With summer approaching, many physicians across the country are wondering about locum tenens opportunities. What are the advantages of taking a temporary position during the peak vacation season or any other time of the year?
To answer those questions, talk with All Medical Personnel’s staffing professionals at Internal Medicine 2012, the annual scientific meeting of the American College of Physicians April 19-21 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
For more than 20 years, All Medical Personnel has been finding temporary or long-term locum tenens placements for physicians and other healthcare professionals. For internists, the major advantages include:
- Variety. You have a chance to practice your skills in a new clinical setting and serve a different patient population. Many locum tenens physicians also enjoy a change of pace in their lifestyle, such as spending a month or two in a seaside, mountain or other vacation-oriented community.
- Flexibility. You can choose a schedule that meets your needs. That might mean working a new shift, taking a temporary assignment for several weeks or moving to a new location for several months or longer.
- Work-family balance. A locum tenens assignment can help you find a healthy balance between work and family responsibilities. For instance, it can be difficult for two medical professionals to find appealing jobs in the same location. A locum tenens placement can provide a temporary solution while you search for the right step to advance your careers.
Internal Medicine 2012 will feature more than 250 sessions on internal medicine, its subspecialties, and issues in practice management and health care policy.
