Our survey asked questions like:
- Why do locum tenens providers start locum work?
- Why do they continue?
- What are their favorite/ least favorite parts?
- Does experience level play a role in providers’ answers to the above questions?
By looking at the data gathered through the lens of experience, we were able to gain unique insights into the typical locum provider’s career, including what they take out of locum tenens work in the beginning, middle, and end of their career. We learned why providers with less than 5 years in practice do locum work for highly different reasons than their more experienced colleagues, and why both groups started locum tenens to begin with.
