Michigan Locum Tenens Jobs: We're Hiring in the Great Lakes State!

Doctors, dentists, and advanced practitioners: Interested in new career horizons? We're currently recruiting skilled physicians and healthcare professionals for locum tenens positions throughout Michigan.

Opportunities abound in Michigan, and particularly for hospitalists, CRNAs, dentists, psychiatrists, and emergency medicine physicians.

So, if you're not already located there, why work a Michigan locum tenens job? Here are a few pretty good reasons:

  • Outdoor splendor and adventure. Relax on Lake Michigan's Silver Beach in the south. Explore Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and the Upper Peninsula's numerous islands and waterfalls. Navigate Lake Superior's waterways to Isle Royale National Park in the far north. Michigan is strewn with opportunities to experience nature at its best.
  • A higher standard of physician compensation. According to Medscape's 2017 Physician Compensation Report, physician salaries are higher in middle America — "from the Dakotas and Kansas in the West through Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio in the East," as we reported back in April — than they are on the coasts.
  • An abundance of opportunity. There's a real need for skilled physicians in Michigan, and especially in rural Michigan, where the 10 hardest-hit counties "had ratios of population-to-primary care physician ranging from 3,095-to-1 ... to 7,463-to-1," reports Bridge Magazine.

"Graduate medical education is big business in Michigan with more than $1 billion in state and federal funds going to the state's 88 teaching hospitals," explains Crain's Business Detroit. "Medicare funds about $850 million and Michigan's Medicaid program funds about $163 million. The past several years the state Legislature has considered ending Medicaid residency funding."
