What are the keys to a successful locum tenens career? That's the question put to a panel of seasoned locum tenens physicians brought together in the spring of 2012 to discuss the current state of the healthcare industry.
The physicians represent a wide range of specialties that includes primary care, cardiology, and psychiatry, discussed adaptability, flexibility, sociability, and having an open mind.
In early 2012, AMN Healthcare and Staff Care brought together a panel of experienced locum tenens physicians representing a wide range of specialties — from primary care to cardiology to behavioral health — to discuss physician careers and healthcare trends.
During that panel, Dr. Andrea Lundell related a story that will strike a nerve with many locum tenens workers — the occasional distrust or disrespect temporary healthcare professionals sometimes experience in the larger industry.
In the spring of 2012, Staff Care organized a roundtable discussion of locum tenens physicians to confer on the current state of the healthcare industry. Among the issues discussed by this group of professionals — who represented a wide range of healthcare specialties, from primary care to cardiology to psychiatry — was the often-controversial topic of electronic medical records (EMRs).
In recent years, many practitioners — from family practice doctors to pediatricians to psychologists — have been forced to reduce their volume, and the time they spend with patients, because of declining rates of reimbursement and shifting expectations for healthcare service. Earlier in 2012, Staff Care convened a panel of locum tenens physicians to discuss this and other healthcare industry trends.
