For the third consecutive year, Interim Physicians has been named to the list of Largest Locum Tenens Staffing Firms in the U.S. by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA).

What do women in medicine want? The locum life.

Posted by Saralynn White on Sep 20, 2018 12:27:13 PM

It’s September 2018 – Women in Medicine Month, as declared by the American Medical Association (AMA) – and today there are 333,833 female physicians practicing in the U.S. Conversely, there were about 200 women physicians in 1960 (to quote a campaign from that era: "You’ve come a long way, baby!").

Meet Dr. Michelle Bens: Queen of the court, the ER, and locum tenens

To celebrate Women in Medicine Month (sponsored by the American Medical Association) we wrote about one of our favorite female physicians, Dr. Michelle Bens. September's Women in Medicine Month serves as a platform to showcase the accomplishments of female physicians and highlights advocacy needs related to professional concerns of women physicians and health issues affecting women patients.

Thinking about going locum? You're not alone.

Moonlighting, freelancing, substituting, contracting…whatever you call it, physicians working as locum tenens dates back to the seventies – 1979 in our case – and in 2018 more patients need health care and more healthcare facilities need your medical skills. It’s a growing job market!

The pool of qualified doctors who want to work as locum tenens is growing, too, in part because the profession is plagued by dissatisfaction, depression, and burnout. In fact, burnout rates are twice as high for medicine than other fields (per the Medscape National Physician Burnout & Depression Report for 2018). It’s one reason locum tenens holds such appeal for doctors of all ages and experience levels. Healthcare experts even suggest that bringing in locum tenens doctors can elevate the quality of a care at hospitals because it gives staff physicians time off (to help prevent burnout).

Rudy, Warm Beer, and a Tuskegee Airman: Adventures with Justin Moore, MD

Posted by Saralynn White on May 10, 2018 9:26:36 AM

We started our story of Justin Moore, MD, with his journey to the ICU. If you’re a patient or the family of a patient, though, says Dr. Moore, “Don’t call me Dr. Moore. I’m your friend. We become friends.” It’s what he values most: “The connection with people helps me overcome every long, long day.”

Dr. Moore tells me a story about a man named Rudy and I’m not sure (at first) if Rudy is a friend or a patient. It turns out they became friends while Dr. Moore was treating Rudy’s terminally ill wife. They’re seemingly odd bedfellows, but it becomes clear that patients and friends are one and the same for Dr. Moore.
