Many of our physicians have joined Rural Physicians Group directly from a locum tenens environment. While there are similarities to locum tenens—independent contractor, attractive compensation, flexible scheduling—the differences are significant and critical to understand.
Rural Physicians Group offers long-term stability that locum tenens jobs simply cannot. In many ways, our model is the best of both worlds, where you can make your own schedule and maintain stability and continuity in your position.
With this stability comes community engagement and appreciation. Many of our physicians stay at the same hospital for years, becoming a true member of the community.
More and more small-town hospitals are seeking out Rural Physicians Group as the solution to their long-term financial vitality. You will be empowered to revitalize the medical capabilities of the hospital by offering access to care within the community.
Focus on rural medicine. If you prefer a hands-on, personal approach to care, then you will fall in love with practicing at rural hospitals.
