This job was just what I was looking for - a little something to start out with locum tenans, and augment the position I already have--as I have not done anything like this before. My personality is the type to stick your toe in the water before jumping all the way in. This is a 2-3 hour drive from where I live, and temporary --perfect for me. I stay at a local hotel and my reservations are sent to me in advance.
MDA did my background check and most of the credentialing work, and were patient while I was getting the details of my application done. My first day of the job I was welcomed by staff here and the schedule and exam room set ups were easy to learn. I signed on for more days after I saw how favorably I was treated here.
I hope to fill in for more temp work, like maternity leave, medical leave and vacations for other offices in the future.
independence, meeting new people, seeing other management systems
not knowing the local specialists to match patient referals, but the staff here helps me with that.
