What You Need To Know

    How to Create an Eye-Catching CV:

  • When being considered for a locum tenens opportunity, it is important to remember that several other candidates are also being considered. Having a easy to read CV will help increase your chances of being selected for an opportunity. Here is what we suggest when creating a CV:
    • Personal Information (full name, address, contact phone numbers, email address, etc)
    • Board Eligible/Certified of what specialty
    • Academic History (in month/year format)
    • Work History (in month/year format)
    • Licensure
    • Certifications
    • Honors
    • Volunteer work and additional accomplishments

  • Documents and Certifications You Need to Get Started
  • Any new hospital you work at and any new stating you work in, you will need to complete a hospital credentialing application along with a licensing application. Locum Source will help streamline the paperwork process but it is important that you are current on certifications, CME credits, licenses and credentialing. Here is a list of items you will need in order to get started with the locum tenens process:
    • Updated CV in month/year format
    • One active license and DEA
    • Board Eligibility or Certification
    • BLS/ACLS/ATLS (other certifications may be needed for different specialties)

    Why It’s Important to Keep Your Hands in Medicine

    • As a new graduate, one of the first things employers will look at is your most recent work experience. Take into consideration, the longer you wait to start work after training, the more difficult it may be to find you the right opportunity. Our recommendation is not to go for more than one to two months without employment.

    Doing Locum Tenens on a VISA Versus a Green Card

    • In order to do locum tenens work, you must have a Green Card or an EAD Card, be a U.S Citizen, and have completed your residency training from an accredited training program in the U.S. Unfortunately, we cannot place individuals as independent contractors who are on a VISA.
