A Physician’s Guide to Locum Tenens

⁣ I embarked on the journey of travel medicine/ 1099 contracting after feeling burned out and unsatisfied with my career and the direction it was headed. Those were some of the best years of my life. The freedom to create my own schedule, experience different hospital systems, and travel on someone else’s dime is indescribable and I hope every doctor can experience it at least once.⁣

Now nicknamed the “Locums Guru” I have helped several physicians get their start in locums/ contract work. From resident physicians looking to start their first job to well-seasoned doctors seeking a career change, I have offered support to those who are not sure on how to begin.

Defining Moments

The freedom to create my own schedule and work as much and as little as I want was a turning point in my burnout recovery journey.

Supporting a Vision

In addition to giving me more control over my schedule, locum tenens has allowed me to dedicate time to other ventures, including my NGO Healing Words Foundation.



I came to Dr. Ampadu at a time when I didn’t know I was experiencing burnout but knew something wasn’t right. She helped me recognize my feelings were valid and offered ways to reduce my stressors and start my journey towards recovery.

The tips Dr. Ampadu has given me to create a better work-life balance have helped decrease mental exhaustion and allowed me to love my job once again.


Dr. Ampadu taught me how to make sure my voice was heard when I started my first job as an Attending and didn’t know how to express my concerns to my peers and administration.
