Reclaiming Medicine: The Locum Story of Hospitalist Dr. Brandt

Interim Physicians Celebrates National Doctors Day 2023, Names Doctors Without Borders Corporate Charity

National Doctors Day, celebrated annually on March 30, is an opportunity for healthcare organizations nationwide to express their appreciation for the invaluable contributions of our nation’s doctors.

While 24 hours cannot fully express our gratitude for the invaluable contributions of our locum tenens providers, Interim Physicians would like to thank you for your valuable contributions to healthcare. Whether you’re filling a temporary staffing need or providing critical relief in a disaster-stricken area, your dedication to improving the lives of others remains steadfast. 

In the wake of the deadly earthquakes and aftershocks that killed and injured hundreds of thousands across Turkey and Syria, Interim Physicians chose to celebrate Doctors Day differently this year.

Interim Physicians team adopted Doctors Without Borders as our official corporate nonprofit in memory of our late founder, Dr. Ken Teufel, to aid over 30 hospitals in these countries.

Until his passing in 2021, “Dr. Ken” led Interim Physicians for 42 years as our medical director, pioneering the staffing industry and helping create the locum tenens industry.

As if he wasn’t busy enough, Dr. Teufel also volunteered with Doctors Without Borders, providing medical assistance to underserved communities in Asia. 

For Doctors Day 2023, Interim Physicians staff launched an internal fundraiser and donated $2,510 to support Doctors Without Borders as they deliver medical aid, supplies, and hands-on care across Turkey and Syria. 

As an organization, our mission is to deliver healthcare where it’s most needed. Our locum tenens physicians and APPs have tirelessly worked across our client facilities throughout the nation. On National Doctors Day 2023, we acknowledge their valiant efforts and extend our impact beyond borders to honor the legacy of our beloved founder.  

Thank you for inspiring us as locum tenens providers to go where the need is greatest. We are now following in your footsteps. 

Happy National Doctors Day! We’re humbled to collaborate with dedicated locum tenens physicians like you to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those in need, at home and abroad. Thank you for being a valued part of the Interim Physicians family.
