Physicians are looking for better ways to work that don’t align with traditional career opportunities. Today, many physicians are working longer hours and taking on responsibilities outside their core expertise, contributing to burnout and a growing supply-demand imbalance of patients in need and quality providers. Medscape’s 2024 physician burnout report found that nearly half of physicians report experiencing burnout. A statistic that must improve for the sake of our physicians’ mental and physical well-being.

Locum tenens staffing companies aim to address this problem by connecting physicians with healthcare systems who need them, providing flexible working conditions that support a healthier work-life balance. With numerous locum companies available, choosing the right partner for your journey can be daunting. 

Whether you’re an ObGyn, Urologist, Surgeon, or any other specialty, here are five reasons why Era Locums stands out as the locum tenens company of choice for exceptional physicians:

By doing so, they can match you with locum jobs that not only fit your professional skills but also align with your personal and lifestyle preferences. This bespoke approach ensures that each placement is a best possible fit, allowing you to practice at your full potential without the distractions of administrative duties or hospital politics.

2. Empowerment and Career Autonomy

One of the core philosophies at Era Locums is empowering physicians to take control of their careers. We offer locum tenens opportunities that allow you to work at the top of your license, free from the constraints of traditional employment models. This means you can focus on providing excellent patient care and advancing your clinical skills, all while enjoying the freedom to choose assignments that suit your life. 

3.Advocates for the Compensation You Deserve

Understanding the market demand for physician specialists, Era Locums ensures that our locum tenens positions come with competitive compensation. We recognize your worth and strive to offer the highest locum tenens salary possible, reflecting your expertise and the value you bring to healthcare facilities. This commitment to fair compensation is one of the reasons many physicians choose Era Locums for their locum tenens placements.

4. Community of Your Peers

Joining Era Locums means becoming part of a like-minded and collaborative community. We offer peer-to-peer support and foster connections among our locums to create a sense of belonging. This community-driven approach helps alleviate the isolation that can sometimes come with locum tenens work and provides a valuable network for sharing experiences and advice.

“Could not be happier with my experience with Era Locums! Kat, my recruiter, is an absolute pleasure to work with. She advocates on your behalf, she is responsive to your needs, and she is just a wonderful and genuine person you can trust. Era Locums is also very prompt with their payments, and they surprise you with adorable little gifts throughout the year on special holidays. It is definitely a company that sets itself apart from its peers. Physicians, join the team; you won’t regret working with Era Locums!”
