Imagine a life where your career doesn't just support your dreams but propels you into the adventure of a lifetime. For the CRNA Dream Team, Amber and Vinny, this dream became a reality thanks to the freedom and flexibility that comes from working as locum tenens CRNAs.

For most healthcare professionals, such a spontaneous adventure would be impossible. However, thanks to the flexibility of a locum tenens career, the CRNA Dream Team turned this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity into reality.

From the OR to the Amazing Race: Amber and Vinny’s Story

Amber and Vinny began their locum tenens CRNA careers with Medicus in the summer of 2021, driven by the desire for increased work-life balance and scheduling flexibility. Their passion for providing top-notch anesthesia care, matched with their love for adventure and new experiences, made this career path a perfect fit.

The flexibility offered by locum tenens work allowed them to immerse themselves in new places and experiences, making their professional lives as fulfilling as their personal ones. They could choose assignments that aligned with their personal schedules, ensuring they never missed out on important life events or opportunities to explore new destinations.

When the opportunity to be on The Amazing Race presented itself, they jumped at the chance. The adventurous spirit that had driven them to pursue a locum tenens career was the same spirit that made them perfect candidates for the show. They knew that the flexibility of their locum tenens roles would allow them to take on this challenge without compromising their professional responsibilities.

The Call to Adventure: 30 Days to Departure

One of the most thrilling—and challenging—aspects of The Amazing Race is the short notice given to participants. Contestants find out they’ve been selected just 30 days before filming begins. For many healthcare providers, securing a month off work on such short notice would be nearly impossible; however, for Amber and Vinny, their locum tenens careers and partnership with Medicus made it possible. Once the Dream Team got on the show, Medicus handled all of the scheduling logistics with the hospital to ensure they'd be able to have the time off for filming.

The Power of Career Flexibility: Why Locum Tenens Was Key

Being locum tenens CRNAs provided Amber and Vinny with a unique advantage. Unlike traditional full-time positions, locum tenens work offers unparalleled flexibility. They could adjust their schedules, plan assignments around personal commitments, and take extended time off when needed. This flexibility was crucial when they got the call for The Amazing Race.

However, their ability to rearrange their schedules quickly wouldn’t have been possible without the support of their locum tenens partner, Medicus. Medicus played a pivotal role in making their dream a reality, working diligently with the hospital to ensure Amber and Vinny could participate in The Amazing Race.

Why Choose Medicus: Advancing Your Locum Tenens Assignments

Amber and Vinny’s adventure highlights why partnering with a supportive and efficient locum tenens agency like Medicus is essential. Medicus not only provides assignments that align with providers' professional and personal goals, but they also ensure that when unexpected opportunities arise, such as The Amazing Race, their providers can seize them.
