Early in 2012, AMN Healthcare organized a physicians panel roundtable discussion to focus on healthcare careers, and how locum tenens fits in. Among the topics on the table: Just what are the pros and cons of locum tenens employment?
One of the panelists, Dr. Andrea Lundell, a seasoned locum tenens radiologist, provides her take on the topic in this exclusive healthcare video.
In brief, as Dr. Lundell describes it, the pros and cons of locum tenens employment in the healthcare industry include:
- The ability to set your own schedule, and the benefits that offers to family life.
- Making friends for life at a wide variety of professional locations throughout the United States.
