PM&R specialists—or physiatrists—looking for a change in their routine may be drawn to the appeal of life as a locum tenens. As the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation is so diverse, physiatrists can improve the lives of a wide patient population while combating physician burnout by working as a locums professional.
PM&R involves the diagnosis and restoration of functional ability and quality of life in patients, many of whom suffer from disorders of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Caring for patients with amputations and orthopedic injuries—including many veterans—also falls under the purview of a physiatrist.
