Serving Those Who Served: Caring for Veterans Through Locum Tenens Work
This 4th of July weekend is a time to celebrate our nation and all those men and women who served so that we may have independence.
There are over 9 million veterans counting on the Department of Veterans Affairs for health care. Many of these veterans faced horrors on the battlefield; serious burns, gunshot and shrapnel wounds, pressure shocks from explosives — the list goes on, but when they return home safely, their medical needs continue — and the need for quality patient care remains in high demand.
Many locum tenens physicians choose to work with Veterans Affairs to give back to those who selflessly served our country. NEXTLocums spoke with Dr. Kazi Rezai, a physician who chose locum tenens works for just this reason.
“Taking care of our veterans is such an honor,” said Dr. Rezai. “Getting the chance to serve those who serve our country is a privilege. These patients are heroes in every sense of the word. I get to speak with World War II veterans, Medal of Honor winners, and beyond caring for them, I get to hear their stories.”
