Locums Success in 2022

As the year draws to a close and we reflect on the year to come, many physicians are making New Year’s resolutions. One of those resolutions is likely to be to have a more successful career. However, in order to be successful as a locums doctor for the upcoming year, you need to have three things: a plan, a strategy, and a team.


Physicians “don’t plan to fail, they just fail to plan.” If you want to have a successful year as a locums physician, you can’t just up and decide that locums would be a good idea. If you desire a more successful and fulfilling career, then first make a plan to pursue locums as a career option. Working as a locums physician can afford you opportunities for flexibility in your schedule, increased income, and more time with your family.


The second thing physicians must have to optimize their chances for success as a locums physician is a strategy. You must have a strategy regarding how you plan to find work, how much you intend to work, how much money you want to make, how to work with locums companies, and how to schedule your assignments, among other things. It is important to consider your needs so you can create a strategy that works for your lifestyle.


In addition to having a plan and a strategy, you need a good locums team. The most important member of your locums team is your locums recruiter, your gateway to the right locums jobs. Having a good working relationship with an experienced recruiter can make all the difference in the world in terms of your locums experience.
