The Locum Guy is the Seattle-based hospitalist obsessed with career freedom and flexibility. He successfully practiced locum tenens for years across many states. On his popular blog, he shares unique, super-actionable tips that help physicians make more money and live a better locum life.
During my third year of residency, I remember getting calls from the recruiters trying to solicit me for locum tenens work. Sometimes I would get paged from an out-of-state number and learn it was yet another staffing company’s cold call.
Every job is different, but my experiences so far have drawn a very stark contrast to life as a resident. Now imagine, if you can: you stroll into work at whatever time you want. You round on your patients, write notes and leave. The rest of the day you give verbal orders over the phone while you hang out at the beach.
