Key Findings from Staff Care's 2015 Temporary Physician Survey

The results from Staff Care’s 2015 Survey of Temporary Physician Staffing Trends are in! Polling 2,087 physicians who work temporary (i.e., locum tenens) positions, this year's physician survey yielded some interesting results, including the fact that the number of physicians working locum tenens is on the rise, and shows every sign of continuing to grow in the years to come.

In addition, we've found that an increasing number of younger physicians are beginning to work locum tenens positions directly after completing their residency, often as a means to test out different healthcare environments before committing to a permanent position.

In order to illustrate these and other key findings from our latest physician staffing survey, we're pleased to offer the following infographic. We welcome you to share it with your colleagues and networks, and help us spread the word about the importance of temporary physician staffing!
