BEST Podcast for all doctors!

Shout out to Dr Nii & Dr Renee for their transparency and informative insight into working locums. You make my job as a locums consultant or as I call myself a “Physician Career Coach” so much easier! Why wouldn’t doctors want to work locums. You answer “All” the questions and then some. Doctors take a listen… they are real and shed light on the stigmas around locums and all the benefits.
