Medical Economics: Why locum tenens work is a viable solution for fighting burnout in the medical field
Sophia Morris, EVP, Client Fulfillment & Strategy Teams, shared how physicians can find flexibility and financial benefits while developing their careers through locum tenens.
The current system is not doing enough to alleviate physician burnout, which has resulted in a significant prevalence of burnout among physicians. One solution gaining traction is locum tenens work, a form of temporary staffing that allows physicians to fill in for absent colleagues. This solution offers a flexible and sustainable way to address physician burnout while alleviating the burden on the healthcare system. It also offers a range of benefits, including freedom and flexibility, financial benefits, career development, reduced administrative burdens, and travel experiences.
