New Physicians Can Test Drive New Settings via Locum Tenens Jobs

Medical residents coming into the job market are in a difficult position. They have spent years learning how to treat patients but are expected to choose a permanent position with sometimes limited real-world practice experience. Medical school simply doesn't prepare you for such a search and completing a residency program in a single location can be limiting in knowing which type of medical practice best meets your needs.
