Working locum tenens in the government sector comes with unique professional and personal benefits. You have options across the nation, the flexibility to make your own schedule, plus the chance to give back to deserving populations in potentially exciting settings. And when you partner with VISTA, you have dedicated recruiters by your side, just as passionate about finding the right match as you are about finding a rewarding experience.
At VISTA, we’re just as passionate about our work as the clinicians we place. Our job isn’t simply to fill open assignments and keep healthcare facilities staffed with qualified providers — our job is to build relationships and launch or grow careers. We’re there for our candidates and strive to make the process as smooth as possible.
We shared the inside scoop from a healthcare recruiter previously on our blog. Today’s post puts the spotlight on Jahan Yu, a Recruiter on the Psychiatry team at VISTA.

While many of those that work in the healthcare profession know that March 30th is National Doctors' Day, there is a lot that’s unknown about the origins of Doctors’ Day.
Doctors’ Day dates back to the 1930s when a physician's wife in Georgia, Eudora Brown Almond, had a luncheon to celebrate the important role that physicians have always played in the local community.

The Match is something every doctor remembers. Years of school, intense study and preparation lead to this moment when medical students learn where they will spend their next three to eight years or more in specialty training.
Match Week 2018 is around the corner, with Match Day on Friday, March 16th. To all medical students heading into Match Week — congratulations! No matter what happens, you’ve worked hard to get here and should be proud of your accomplishments.
We talk about the clinician perspective a lot on our blog. What about the healthcare recruiters who place them and ensure continuity of care?
Do you have apps on your phone that help you get through the day? We mean mobile apps that keep you organized, remind you of things or save important files, help you reach goals or just stay connected and up to date. Now, how about apps for your patients?
If you’re a locum tenens clinician with a passion for giving back, the Indian Health Service may have the professional experience you’re looking for next. Taking on locum tenens work with the Indian Health Service (IHS) can help fill an essential need for a culturally rich, highly appreciative community.
National Doctors’ Day is an annual event to honor the service of physicians across the country. First observed in the 1930s, Doctors’ Day is held on March 30th to commemorate the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery on March 30th, 1842. Designated a national holiday under President Bush in 1990, Doctors’ Day continues to be an occasion for patients to recognize doctors’ commitment to their care and for physicians to celebrate the achievements of their fellow professionals.
Our nation’s veterans served and sacrificed to protect our freedom. Now they deserve high quality care, and the Veterans Health Administration provides that to millions of veterans each year. As the largest health care system in the country, the VA operates thousands of hospitals, clinics, outpatient sites and other facilities—offering endless career opportunities for locum tenens clinicians.
We owe our nation’s freedom, safety and security to the brave men and women who serve in the United States armed forces—the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. They put their lives on the line and face unfathomable dangers when deployed. Ensuring their health and well-being at home is critical.
