As locums physicians become increasingly respected and appreciated for the services they provide to organizations looking to fill their staffing needs, physicians who desire to gain more freedom, flexibility, control, and money are poised to successfully enter this growing field. Yet, since many were not encouraged to pursue this route during medical school, residency, or fellowship, they have no idea where to begin. That is why Dr. Stephanie E. Freeman has written Doc-for-Hire: A Blueprint for Living a Locums Life.
In Doc-for-Hire, an informative, tell-all guide, Dr. Stephanie has compiled her decade’s worth of experience working and traveling as a locums doctor to teach physicians the entire locums process. Replete with tips from how to find top assignments and negotiate peak market rates to how to set up your locums business, and much more, this book will provide every physician with the proven strategies necessary to avoid pitfalls and embrace their identity as a “doc-for-hire.”
