From the Author
Just what is this locum tenens thing anyway? Having spent over a decade as a locum tenens physician, I offer insight into the process of finding an assignment, handling the details before, during and after a job as well as how to live a full life on the road.
More than a how-to book on what to pack in your suitcase, there are details about surviving the byzantine world of hospital credentialing, finding your way in a new hospital, as well as remembering all those names! Not to leave out the other side, there's even a chapter if you are planning to hire a locum tenens provider - how to make both of your lives less stressful and potentially beneficial to you both.
