Meet Dr. Edwin M., Family Medicine Physician
At Cross Country Locums, we are privileged to work with outstanding physicians and advanced practice providers devoted to providing the best in patient care across the nation. We’re here to celebrate these providers and pass along their insights to inspire others interested in the field.
During National Physicians Week, we are happy to spotlight Family Medicine Physician, Dr. Edwin M. Here, Dr. M. shares why he pursued family medicine and what he likes about working as a locum!
Why did you become a Family Medicine Physician?
I pursued family medicine for many reasons that other physicians pursue it: The ability to take care of all age groups, the joy of being able to practice in unique settings and develop a diverse skillset, and the need to have generalists guide patients to healthy behaviors.
What advice would you give someone starting out as a Family Medicine Physician?
I would advise new physicians to enjoy the diversity of the specialty and not limit their choices to the routine and commonly traveled paths.
Why did you choose to work locums?
Locums gives me the ability to augment both my income and my experiences, which is a win-win for me in my career.
What do you like about Cross Country Locums?
CCL is physician-focused. The people at CCL reach out to me more frequently than other locums providers I have worked for and respond quickly to my questions and needs as a provider.
What do you like about working at the facilities Cross Country Locums has placed you with?
I’m on my first locums assignment with CCL. It is as a provider at the isolation and quarantine sites for homeless Covid patients. It has been a unique and fulfilling experience. Since medical school I have worked with that population and CCL gave me the opportunity to continue to serve that need.
