Mint Physician Staffing shares some information on how you can find the right locum tenens agency to suit your needs below.
Know What You Want
If you have a realistic vision of what you want and what you need, you can work hand in hand with your healthcare job placement recruiter to accurately present you to employers that match exactly what you’re looking for.
Pay Attention to Industry Standards
An agency that’s an active member of the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations means that they adhere to a set of standards and practices for professional conduct that’s outlined by NALTO. An agency that has good standing with NALTO, like Mint Physician Staffing, is more reputable than one who doesn’t.
Let Them Take the Wheel
Another key indication of good locum tenens agency that can suit your needs is the fact that they are willing to take care of all the details, from A to Z. Ask your prospective telemedicine staffing company about their key services, such as credentialing, contract negotiations, travel, and housing. An agency that manages transportation and living arrangements is better than a company who leaves you to focus on accommodations.
Make Sure They Have an Established Network
The right physicians staffing agency will have connections with a variety of healthcare facilities, with an array of jobs all over the country. They will also be able to offer immediate support anytime you need it, which leads us to our final point.
