Consider locum tenens opportunities.

Locum tenens is a Latin phrase meaning “one holding a place.” The term is used today to refer to a physician who temporarily carries on the practice of an absent physician in any setting due to circumstances like family leave, CME, staffing shortages, vacation and seasonal fluctuations.

Many graduating residents and fellows broaden their experience through locum tenens opportunities. These work opportunities can help you build an impressive CV.

With the freedom to choose when, where, and how often you work, you can explore multiple areas of the country and experience varied working environments before you accept a more permanent position. Choose from opportunities in private practices, rural clinics, rehabilitation centers and large hospital systems.

You also enjoy the benefit of an overhead-free income so that you can begin to pay off your education loans immediately, and you receive comprehensive malpractice insurance coverage at no cost to you.
