Why become a locum



Locums are integral to providing Australians with quality health care, and are highly in demand. By becoming a locum, doctors are:

  • Free to accept the shifts they want at the hospitals they want.
  • Receive pay at a significantly higher rate than the rates available through primary employment.
    • Able to advance their career through exposure to a wide range of situations and facilities, including some of Australia‚Äôs major teaching hospitals.
    • Establish networks for future career opportunities.
  • Gain Access to free or heavily subsidised training courses.
