  • Access to better pay and can be a way to supplement your income while working a permanent job.
  • Improved work/life balance and flexibility in your work schedule.
  • Diverse work settings and opportunities to find out what you like or don’t like.
  • The chance to travel to new places and meet new people.

In addition to these awesome benefits, final-year residents get access to various opportunities for mentorship as well. 38% of residents feel unprepared to face the business side of their practice. Locums offer residents the chance to explore different opportunities to work with different people and learn first-hand how different practices are run. It also allows residents to work with different staff, peers, and understand different office politics without committing to a permanent job.
