A recent study estimates the percentage of independent contractors in the U.S. workforce could rise to 40% in 2020. Many professionals are considering the value of independence when it comes to career moves.

Accepting a permanent contract as a locum tenens physician is not only a beneficial career choice, the competitive compensation, paid travel, and the flexible freedom of the “locum lifestyle” offer several advantages over maintaining a private practice.

Permanent Positions Advantages

  • The Locum Lifestyle – Flexibility, deciding when and where you want to work, more choice than ever before and the freedom to make those choices. 
  • Improve Clinical Skills in Diverse Work Environments - Exposure to new technologies, processes, cutting-edge developments like EMRs and robotics, and patient care protocols will expand clinical skills and improve experience.
  • Make A Great Living, Earn Great Pay – While contracted compensation will depend on practice type, location, and qualifications, locum tenens salaries are usually competitive. Healthcare organizations are willing to pay top dollar for the right skill set. 
  • Enjoy Paid Travel, Free Housing and Other Perks – Major expenses, including housing, travel, and relocation expenses, are usually covered while under contract. Locum tenens physicians could be placed in an apartment, hotel, or rental house, depending on the location. Some contracts may also provide a rental car and other perks such as handling state licensing and credentialing, covering liability insurance and other fees.
  • Relieve Burnout - Experiencing new ways of practicing medicine can wipe away the cobwebs of repetition and restore confidence.
  • Enjoy Acceptance by Peers and Patients – In the past, locum tenens physicians may have been frowned upon by other professionals. Patients may have distrusted temporary doctors. Now, staffing firms like LeaderStat and healthcare organizations have tightened referencing and licensure procedures and vetting qualifications, eliminating any uncertainty.
