Andrew Wilner, MD, FACP, FAAN, has published a book that helps physicians to achieve the proper work/life balance.
“The Locum Life: A Physician’s Guide to Locum Tenens” is an in-depth discussion about working locum tenens or being employed as a temporary physician. The number of U.S. physicians working in this capacity has doubled, from 25,000 to 50,000.Three-quarters of hospitals rely on locum tenens physicians to stay fully staffed, including Regional One Health in Memphis.
“Physicians will learn how to find their first locum tenens assignment, run their own business, travel, and achieve the work/life balance of their dreams,” Dr. Wilner, an associate professor in the Department of Neurology in the College of Medicine at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), said.
Dr. Wilner has practiced locum tenens in various medical settings. He is a prolific medical journalist and author of several books, including “Bullets and Brains,” which discusses epilepsy and other neurologic disorders.
