Global Medical Staffing now offers locum tenens assignments in the Middle East, allowing physicians in most specialties a unique cultural exchange at top-tier hospitals and medical facilities in the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Salt Lake City, UT (Vocus) February 16, 2010 -- Global Medical Staffing (GMS) announced that it has contracted with a group of top-tier hospitals and medical practices in the Middle East to begin providing temporary “locum tenens” physician staffing services. This expands GMS’s physician placement services from Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean, and the United States and its territories, to include the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Alan Lakomski, Chief Operating Officer for GMS, said, “Over the years, many of our doctors have expressed interest in working in the Middle East. We are proud that we cannot only assist them to make this experience a reality, but also place them into facilities that are administered by such influential groups as Johns Hopkins, the Cleveland Clinic, and Bumrungrad.”
These Middle Eastern facilities are world-class, state-of-the-art hospitals. Because of the region’s oil wealth, the hospitals are also architectural masterpieces with the finest equipment and furnishings. According to GMS President and Chief Executive Officer, Robert Stringham, “The hospitals are breathtaking in their size, scope and beauty. They would be the pride of any major metropolitan city in the world.”
Doctors who accept jobs in the facilities receive an income that is not taxed in the Middle East. They also receive free housing, utilities, malpractice and medical insurance, vacation, home visit airfare, and free school for their children. Plus, they’re reimbursed for a site visit to make a determination about accepting a job there.
