Calling all Psychiatrists to San Diego: Multiple Locum Tenens Opportunities Available

Get your beach chairs ready! Interim Physicians has multiple, long-term psychiatry opportunities available in sunny San Diego, California. With this exclusive locum tenens assignment, you can have it all—even in your downtime.

In addition to its 70 miles of Pacific Ocean coastline, San Diego features mile-high mountains and sprawling state parks, the perfect terrain for hiking, camping, and fishing trips. If you would rather take time between shifts to relax, there are plenty of restaurants and vineyards for foodies and wine connoisseurs. When you need a break from the clinical setting, tour museums, and art galleries, explore the vibrant downtown scene, or play a few rounds at one of the city’s 92 golf courses.

With so much to do, you’ll be glad that this isn’t your typical locum assignment. We are looking to build a team of physicians that will commit to providing ongoing quality coverage for the community, so you’ll have plenty of time to soak up the sun and explore everything San Diego has to offer.
