Making It Count in 2021: Reach Goals with a Locums Career

It is no secret that 2020 was challenging, especially for healthcare professionals who worked tirelessly to keep hospitals and patients safe.  On behalf of the Medicus Healthcare Solutions family, we would like to thank all healthcare workers for their commitment to their patients day in and day out. Your resilience and willingness to go above and beyond has saved countless lives in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.  As we look forward to 2021, we start to identify resolutions that matter to us. If you are entering the year with a new set of goals, here are a few examples of how our team can turn those goals into reality.

  • Spend more time with family. You choose where and when to pursue an opportunity. Working locum assignments can make spending time with your family easy and stress-free. Flexible scheduling allows you to put your family first. Are you only available on the weekends? Can you only work at facilities near your hometown? Medicus can make that happen.
  • Improve financial health. With locum assignments ranging from call shifts to weekend coverage and more — you can work locum tenens in addition to your full-time job to earn supplemental income.  Due to supply and demand, locum positions typically pay more than working as a permanent employee.
  • Gain new experiences in different work settings. You have the freedom to choose where you want to work – urgent care, hospital, private practice, etc. Locums assignments offer various clinical environments while expanding your network and skills.
  • Give back. Rural communities most often struggle to find permanent employees. Medicus partners with small community hospitals to help provide essential coverage. Working locums in rural areas allow you to help patients who are in critical need of care. Many of our locum providers find this work fulfilling because they develop lasting long-term relationships.

Working as a locum provider offers a career with less stress, more financial security, and a better work-life balance.

If your New Year’s resolutions include any of these goals, please email us at  We can help you establish a career that aligns with your personal and professional goals.
