Locum work – your door to endless opportunities


Why most Doctors decide to locum

Updated 8th May 2019

Whether you’re hoping to maximise your earning potential, experience new working environments or visit new locations across Australia, locum work gives you the freedom to realise your goals.

Emergency Physician Dr Eleanor Moulden, shares with us her insights into just how rewarding a locum experience can really be.

What is your favourite locum destination?

It would have to be Alice Springs. The department is friendly, the work is interesting and challenging and the area is beautiful with so much to explore.

Another of my favourite’s is Launceston. It too has a really friendly department and great team to be a part of. Tassie is also great to explore with many outdoor activities to do like rock climbing and mountain bike riding.

Dr Eleanor Moulden explores different parts of Australia with Locum work.

Stepping out of my comfort zone gives me perspective. Experiencing life outside my normal environment is rewarding and eye opening. I get to meet amazing and incredible people working in remote and rural communities. The break from routine can also be very refreshing.

What advice would you give to doctors who have never locumed before?

I would advise doctors to do something a little different, check out a health system in a new location and explore a place you wouldn’t normally work.  If you’re from the city, go to the country, increase your skill set and gain greater exposure to new ways of doings things.

What location would you like to locum at?

I would love to head up to North Western Australia, Broome – Karratha.  This part of Australia has always fascinated me and would be great to not only work but explore around. I haven’t worked there yet as my roster hasn’t allowed me to… yet!

    I have to express my appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from
    this problem. After exploring throughout the world wide web and meeting ideas that were not pleasant, I believed my entire
    life was done. Living without the answers to the
    difficulties you've sorted out through your main report is a serious case, and the ones which might have in a wrong
    way damaged my entire career if I had not
    discovered your web blog. Your actual training and kindness in dealing with the
    whole thing was tremendous. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a
    stuff like this. It's possible to at this moment
    look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the reliable and result oriented help.
    I won't think twice to recommend the sites to any individual who should receive care
    on this subject matter.
