Working as a locum provides GPs with a unique opportunity to discover new experiences and explore a range of varying positions across metropolitan and rural Australia. Working as a locum allows you the flexibility to not just explore if a general practice position is right for you but allows you to work in different locations throughout Australia – and explore the off the beaten paths not normally accessible to visitors.
Locum GP jobs in Australia are the best way to see this beautiful country, whilst working with varying local communities and cultures, providing continuity of care or much-needed cover, and assisting rural communities in need of specialty GP services.
Working as a GP locum not only provides you with the opportunity for greater flexibility and relaxed working hours and reduced paperwork, whilst also encouraging ongoing education and development, increased time to deliver greater care for patients, and a strong and supportive collegial culture – all whilst improving the health and well-being of remote and rural communities.
What sort of work can I do as Locum GP?
General Practitioner locums play an important role in the Australian medical community. A locum is a person who temporarily fulfills the duties of another – and in our case, the role of the General Practitioner.
General Practitioner locums are used on a temporary and long-term basis to fill the roles for all sorts of reasons, including holiday cover, sick leave, maternity leave, and covering GPs who have moved interstate or overseas. Locum GP jobs can be in a metropolitan general practice setting or in remote hospitals. Locumming allows a professional to experience a wide range of work environments or specialisation fields which a permanent employee may not normally encounter.
