[su_youtube url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F__cTCBj1E8"] Locum tenens allows Dr. Johnny Shen to feel like a sports star. He picks when and where he wants to work and maintains a strong work/life balance. He credits locum tenens with providing him the lifestyle he has always wanted. “I get to choose when I work, I get to find my jobs,” Shen says. “And I get to have a week off.” Coming out of residency Dr. Shen was exploring alternative options for his full-time career as an attending physician. He was having a hard time identifying careers that would allow him to focus on being a physician while he was at work but also let him have a life outside of work. When a colleague told him about locum tenens he knew he had found the career he wanted. “You’re an independent contractor, you get to pick your days and get to travel,” Shen says. “I do locum tenens because I was made for it, I love the flexibility, it fits my personality and I will probably do it for a very long time.” Learn more about Dr. Shen’s locum tenens story.
