An emergency department in western Massachusetts is seeking a locum tenens psychiatrist for consultations. The schedule is Monday-Friday, 8 am-5 pm, and the facility wants a 6-month commitment.
There are typically 3-5 new patients per 8 hour shift and a variable number of follow ups. The position is C/L both on the medical floors and ED and there is no cap on consults.

by Elizabeth Taylor DO

Psychiatrist

This is a fantastic company. They are ALWAYS accessible, work to get you the best job to fit your needs, get you the highest pay and benefits. They protect you from unscrupulous employers. They make sure that you get OT pay if you worked OT. They have excellent connections, and they’ll do as much of your paperwork as they can.
Unlike other companies, they do not pester and call you incessantly, they’re not aggressive, they don’t send out your CV w/o your consent, and they don’t allow you to sign a contract that is not in your best interest.
