From philosophical to financial, the reasons physicians and advanced practitioners cite for working locums are nearly as varied as the number of medical specialties practiced today. Here are some of the most common reasons for choosing to live the TEAM LOCUMS lifestyle:
•Trying out a new position before committing to anything permanent. TEAM LOCUM tenens allows you to gain hands-on experience in a given position, helping you to make a more informed decision about whether a position is a good fit and a sound permanent choice.
•Work/life balance and career flexibility. Working TEAM LOCUM tenens gives you space to breathe and a higher quality of life, and it also lets you balance your work life with your family life because you get to choose when you work and where you work. So, whether you’re looking to spend more time with your kids, step back from work but not fully retire, or enjoy life’s other pursuits, TEAM LOCUM tenens could be the perfect fit.
•Traveling and exploring new destinations. The need for TEAM LOCUM tenens physicians and advanced practitioners can be found across the country in rural and urban settings and everywhere in between, which means there are plenty of opportunities to experience new places or get reacquainted with familiar ones. TEAM LOCUM tenens providers enjoy this exploration without spending a dime, as travel and housing are provided.
•Avoiding the administrative aspects of a traditional medical practice. Which is more satisfying: paperwork or patients? While you will still have some paperwork to complete, TEAM LOCUM tenens lets you step away from the business side of the healthcare profession and immerse yourself in what you do best – treating patients and making a difference in the lives of others. Focus on your priorities while providing quality care to your patients.
