You can be surprised, but this thing is true: it’s so nice to practice medicine in a tropical paradise by becoming an island locum tenens physician. It’s not only for income, but also for a chance of a 9-moth to a year- advanture.
The first step is to connect with a locum tenens recruitment agency. They’ll have many options available to you, including those in tropical settings. One of the most desirable places to be a locum tenens is Bermuda. Of course, these island physician jobs are English speaking-making the transition into your new locum assignment very comfortable.
In this territory, consisting of approximately 138 islands, you’ll find endless opportunities to work and explore. Bermuda locum tenens typically practice on the main island, which consists of 11 small towns.
You’ll fall in love with the Bermudian people as you come to know the history and culture of the territory. England colonized Bermuda in the early 17th century, and the island still shows the remnants of that British influence. Bermuda’s quaint streets, lined with tidy cottages, are evidence of this-creating a nice mix of both worlds. You’ll love Bermuda’s fresh cuisine, as well. After a day of island adventure, you can enjoy a delicious meal accompanied by live entertainment in the restaurants downtown. With vocal artists, jazz bands and dance floors, Bermuda’s nightlife is sure to please all tastes.
Fill your Bermuda locum days off soaking up the rays on one of the island’s famous pink beaches. Visit the popular Horseshoe Bay beach with private coves and breathtaking views. Or make your way to John Smith’s Bay-a quieter, more secluded beach where you can float in the calm waters and enjoy the sounds of the ocean.
Go parasailing, windsurfing or jet skiing to feel the unbeatable rush of racing on the water. And take a glass bottom boat tour for an up-close view of the coast’s marine life. The water sports and exploration opportunities are endless.
When you’re ready for a break from the water, play a round of golf on one of the island’s many courses. Bermuda has more golf courses per square mile than any other place in the world. Politicians, celebrities and royalty alike have enjoyed this golfer’s paradise. From John F. Kennedy to Babe Ruth to Britain’s royal family, Bermuda golfing has been a worldwide attraction since the 1940s.
Bermuda also has one of the highest concentrations of limestone caves in the world. In 1884, two young boys went looking for their lost cricket ball and instead stumbled upon the Crystal Caves. These caverns’ clear ponds and remarkable stalactites are things you won’t want to miss.
Known as the “Shipwreck Capital of the Atlantic,” Bermuda offers one of the most thrilling scuba diving destinations in the world. You’ll travel back in time as you explore some fascinating shipwrecks dating back as far as the 15th century.
The laidback culture of this prime vacation destination could be the perfect place for your next island physician job. Residents and seasoned physicians alike can benefit from becoming island locum tenens. It’s a great way to make a smooth transition from residency to practice, from one practice to another, or even from full-time to part-time practice. Many choose locum physician jobs because they provide an excellent opportunity to explore the medical world, while offering a fresh, new, diverse work environment. Make sure to find a recruitment agency that helps you meet all of your needs-and don’t wait any longer to live your dream in a tropical paradise. Become a bermuda locum today!
