You’ve done it! You’ve successfully landed a relief gig. What can you do in advance to make it a successful shift?
Relief, or locum, work is defined as a medical professional who temporarily performs the duties of another, typically in clinical roles.
My name is Christina and I have been performing locum veterinarian work intermittently since 2006 and full-time for the past few years.
Everyone has their own niche- for those of us experiencing burnout or fatigue it is probably because we haven’t found it yet. When you find a job you love, it won't feel like work.
If you would like to build your relief practice from the ground up, it can be very rewarding.
You’ve done it! You’ve successfully marketed yourself as a locum professional and landed a relief gig.
Congratulations on doing all the legwork and good luck on your upcoming shift!
We are Ono and Nora, fish veterinarians primarily for aquaculture. We worked together for the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission and both sit on the board for the American Association of Fish Veterinarians (AAFV).
