Perspectives on the locum tenens industry

To: Michigan Hospital, With Love: Interim Physicians

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the hospital codes were being run and normal chaos continued.  But, one hospital physician had fallen ill and was taking a last minute leave during the holiday season.  The busy Northern Michigan hospital was already stretched to cover all of the patients that needed care. The staff wondered who they could count on in such a bind, especially during the busiest time of the year.

They sought help from Interim Physicians. The hospital knew that Interim Physicians would connect them to a locums hospitalist in no time thanks to an incredible mobile workforce, advanced sourcing methods and technological expertise.

Immediately, Account Manager, Rowda, reached out to the recruiting team. Rowda had come to expect that the recruiting team would rise to the challenge of finding quality physicians in a bind.

Recruiter Mari understood the complexity of the situation: the facility could not adequately function after losing another physician during the holiday season.  This dire need became Mari’s instant priority.

So, Mari, upholding the Interim Physicians promise of Advancing Quality Care, spoke to a well-reviewed physician that Interim Physicians constantly partners with, Dr. Dib, a board certified locum tenens Hospitalist.

Dr. Dib had spent many years practicing medicine; however, years ago, he decided to quit his full-time permanent hospital job and indulge both of his loves, medicine and travel, by working as a locum tenens physician.

During his travels, Dr. Dib received stellar reviews from each locums assignment that he had completed! The hospital, Mari and Rowda knew Dr. Dib was the perfect physician for the position and even better, Dr. Dib was willing to work only for Interim during the Christmas holiday.

The facility was thrilled that Interim Physicians found last-minute coverage when no one else could and that Interim Physicians worked through the holidays to come through on providing an excellent locum tenens hospitalist!
