Some full-time physicians and advanced practitioners have said no to locums because they feel they do not have the time. Some are concerned that it would interfere with their current job and we understand. Working locums does not mean its a second-job but more like a supplemental opportunity. Whether wanting to earn a little extra cash or exploring a new location, locums work has a lot to offer. There are unique benefits to consider when thinking of this as an option.
You Get To Choose When and Where
With the demand for locums skyrocketing, the control is yours. Assignments vary from a few shifts a week, to a few a month with short and long term assignment as well. With MedCare Staffing, we will partner with you while doing our best to find the perfect match.
It’s A Great Way To Make Extra Income
Are you a new graduate with student debt? According to an article posted in December 2018, the class of 2018 medical school students graduated with $196,520 in student loans. Also, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges, seventy-five percent of medical school students in the class of 2018 graduated with student debt. Consider picking up locum tenens assignments and begin chipping away at this financial debt.
Unexpected Benefits of Locum Tenens
Working locum tenens can add to your repertoire of skills and experiences. When a medical provider travels outside of the network that they work in, they suddenly become exposed to various methods of doing things and unique nuances of different practices. And not to mention the cultural differences if one travels a long distance for locum tenens work.
As you can see, there are a few reasons to consider locums even with a full-time position. MedCare Staffing would love the opportunity to share more so feel free to contact us us at 888-474-3380 and let’s begin the conversation!
