Should I go with smaller vs. larger companies?

I’m in the beginning of my career, can I still do locum tenens?
These are all questions that many of you might have while considering going into locum tenens for the first time. It can be frustrating or even scary to think of changing how you work when you’ve dedicated years in residency practicing one way. Let’s get real, how many of our attendings knew much about locums or even gave it positive reviews?
Well on this episode you’re going to get a primer and history lesson on locums (Dat locums lyfe) from a physician who has been in this lifestyle since the early 80s. My guest is Dr. Andrew Wilner and he is the author of the book The Locum Life: A Physician’s Guide to Locum Tenens. And for anyone interested in locums, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!
