Professionalism and Locum Tenens
Many thanks to Preston Reynolds, MD, PhD, MACP, for inviting me as a guest on the Healthcare Professionalism podcast. Because locum tenens physicians experience many "first days" at their new assignments, mastering professionalism offers significant rewards. Traditional approaches such as the three A's (Availability, Affability, Ability), as well as time-honored strategies such as preparation, respectfulness, timeliness, and appropriate dress go a long way towards smoothing the path to success.*
Dr. Reynolds and I had a lively 30-minute discussion. Please join us! Your feedback is welcome.
*I discuss "Strategies for Success" in Chapter 19 of my book, "The Locum Life: A Physician's Guide to Locum Tenens."
