As a locum tenens healthcare provider, you may reap the benefits that locums have to offer, but you still work hard! Healthcare providers do a lot for the public good, and they deserve a little reward every now and then. Thankfully, a lot of companies agree with that sentiment, with many who are giving out free stuff for healthcare workers upon verification* of their ID!
The opportunities for saving online as a healthcare provider are boundless, but finding the right ones takes a lot of time, and a lot of patience. At Barton, we understand that you don’t have the time to sit and sift through every deal looking for the hidden gems, so this Locum Tenens Week, we compiled an organized list of all the freebies we could dig up so that you don’t have to! The best part? You won’t have to worry about whether that deal you’re eyeing will work for you. We read the fine print to ensure that all medical credentials are good here, that is, these deals can be used by any medical provider type!
