The Downside of Locum

Zero job security

Control over schedule?  Not as much as you'd think

Time away from family

Loneliness & boredom

Dip a toe in the water!

You can jump in the water and hope it is a suitable temperature


You can put your toe in the water


Your ankle...calf...knee..thigh...

You get the point. 

Maybe hospital based practice is a fit,maybe not

Maybe rural locales work for you, maybe not

Maybe the diamond is already in your own backyard

Perhaps before totally giving up what you love, try a temporary assignment.

The locum gig

Everyone who does locum, it seems to me, has a story.  A good story. One that speaks to me and my independent streak.  

The full time locum who refuses conform

The mom who wants to spend more time at home by being away

The harried independent combatting burnout

The retirement plan

The mid-career "what's next?"

Is truly amazing, this option.  This locum tenens option.
