Highest Paying Jobs in Healthcare

Is it a coincidence that the color green is not only the color of money, but it’s also one of the primary colors in our LocumJobsOnline.com logo? Okay, it probably is, but let’s get to my point. With the price of education (especially healthcare education) continuing to rise each year, it’s no surprise that many students are looking at school as an investment.

Medical School Regrets: Physicians Look Back

It’s certainly not healthy to dwell on the past. However, it can be hard not to think about what you could have done differently if you could do it all over again. Physicians feel this.

According to a 2012 study, nearly half of...
