Your colleagues and peers often provide the best insights into what you can expect from locum tenens and your CompHealth recruiter. Below are a few of their comments.
Dr. Books, Family Medicine — Locum tenens allows me to do something I like doing, which is practicing medicine, without worrying about the hospital or office politics. The only person I have to worry about showing up to work is me. My favorite locums assignment was within a 250-mile drive of 7 national parks, and I saw them all. One was 20 minutes away. I literally could leave my assignment, pick my wife up, drive out, watch the sunset, and drive home.
Dr. Ricker, Pediatrician — I choose to work with CompHealth because I have built a relationship with my agent...I like to think of her as an agent because I like to think of myself as somebody who has it taken care of for them. She takes care of everything for me. She makes sure the licensing is done, the credentialing is done. I really do very little paperwork. I get a FedEx package every now and then with flags all over it and I just need to fill in the blanks where the flags are. Everything else is done.
Dr. Ramos, Emergency Medicine — I couldn't be happier that I opted for part-time locum tenens work instead of retirement. I am very glad that I heard from CompHealth when I did. Locum tenens practice saved me from a retirement I was not ready for, and stepping in at rural facilities has been life changing.These rural facilities are so different than what I was used to. I may see only 5 patients on a slow day or as many as 30 patients if we're swamped. I have more time to spend with the patients, and I get to really connect with them and give them the attention they deserve.
Dr. Jagun, Emergency Medicine — The best thing locums provides me is a flexible schedule. I went on my first medical mission in 2001 to Georgetown, Guyana, and knew immediately this was something I would like to spend a large part of the rest of my life doing. There was no way I could do it working 9–5 and wearing a beeper 24/7. That’s when I started calling about locum tenens. Locum tenens provides me with the income I need to dedicate myself to summer missions and still enjoy a comfortable living.
