  • "Correctional medicine pays more and has less, yes less, aggravation than private practice."
  • "Everything equal, VA beats private practice locum every time."

  • Although almost half of physician survey respondents with government practice experience (47%) preferred a civilian clinical setting, 24% preferred a government clinical setting and 28% saw no difference between the two.

    LocumTenens.com booking trends indicate the average locum tenens assignment at a government healthcare facility is three months long. Physicians responding to the recent survey indicated their top three reasons for accepting longer government locum tenens jobs were compensation, flexible work hours, and the opportunity to rotate on and off at most government facilities.

    Among physician survey respondents with government practice experience, 52% worked as a staff employee, 30% worked as a locum tenens or contract employee, and 18% had worked in both capacities. Sixty-two percent of respondents had practiced medicine for more than 10 years, while about a quarter of respondents had practiced for five years or less.
