Practicing Locum Tenens Since 2006
Getting to Know Dr. A:
Why did you first pursue locum tenens work?
Flexibility. Choosing my own work schedule allows me to set aside dates I prefer to be off work.
Describe the most unique assignment you’ve worked.
This was one of the toughest assignments. It was in 2013 and located in North Carolina. The incoming hospitalist group’s contract has not been solidified yet so there was a shortage of Hospitalists to cover the service. With less than 10 Hospitalists each physician had to round 30 patients + admissions. The shifts were long, sometimes 15+ hours. It was short term but very unique nonetheless.
What medical advancements would you like to see in the next 5 years?
Hospitalist At-Home Program (HAH), so the Physician can visit patients at their home 3-5 days post discharge.
Client feedback: Dr. A has been doing great within the Hospitalist Department.
