Yes, in fact, it's a great way for older practicing providers to keep themselves busy without the overwhelming work hours, schedules or commitments that come with other types of physician jobs. For those who are considering retirement, working as a locum physician gives yourself a higher quality of life with an easier ability to balance your personal life with your professional life.
