Description Tips To Do Well On Next Locum Tenens Responsibility
There was a time when the career in locum tenens was the career swan song of older physicians. A locums assignment was a way for a semiretired, 60-year-old emergency medicine physician from Crystal, Minnesota to ditch a frigid winter in the Land of 10,000 Lakes and spend January through April working in sunny southern California – easing out of a practice and into retirement (and golfing and bird watching). There’s still some truth to that scenario, but while retired and semiretired doctors still work locum tenens they no longer represent the majority of locum physicians. Now, doctors of all ages and career phases are working as locum tenens. Between 2012 and 2014, the percentage of clinicians aged 61 years or older who practice as locum tenens decreased by 9.5%, according to a recent industry survey. Meanwhile, the percentage of clinicians aged 40 years or younger working in temporary assignments doubled (from 6.9% to 14%).
