Where we’ve been, where we are, and where we hope to be!
Wanted to send a quick reach out with updates/thoughts.
My name is Haneen, and I am a physician and founder of Locumunity. Thank you for joining me on this journey of reclaiming ownership over the physician job-search. Most of you found us through the grapevine or through online physician groups!
I recently had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Andrew Wilner, #physician #podcaster and author of “The Locum Life” ( a great read, if you haven’t already read it!) about Locumunity in this 8 min video interview.
It was very rewarding to hear from a colleague that there is a need for what we’re trying to build- a data and community driven platform connecting job-seeking physicians and medical facilities. It renewed my energy and belief that we can make #healthcare better with more efficient distribution and utilization of physicians, and by incorporating an understanding of physician wellness and happiness into the job search.
I am a firm believer that when physicians have the flexibility to create better work-life balance, their longevity and passion for this demanding career is extended ( I wouldn’t have been able to work the hours I do on Locumunity, if I didn’t have the flexibility that locum tenens provides).
Have you done locums previously? What made your experience great/bad?
How do YOU find your work-life balance?
Would love to hear your stories!
