PAs Seek Increased Career Flexibility And Options
More than one-third of PAs reported choosing their profession because it provided greater flexibility, according to a recent survey conducted by the American Academy of PAs (AAPA). To provide PAs with the career options they seek, AAPA’s Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management (CHLM) has partnered with CompHealth, the pioneer locum tenens firm, giving PAs across the country access to tailored opportunities that allow them to practice medicine where, when and how they want.
“The PA profession is not one-size-fits-all and opportunities for PAs shouldn’t be either,” said Jennifer L. Dorn, CEO of the American Academy of PAs. “AAPA and CHLM are committed to creating progressive work environments for PAs, the most in-demand medical profession in the U.S. This alliance with CompHealth will give PAs exclusive access to a special level of career customization.”
CHLM recognizes CompHealth as an AAPA Preferred Partner and through this engagement, CompHealth will provide personalized locum tenens services, as well as:
•One-on-one phone consultation
•Contract negotiation services

“At CompHealth, we recognize the crucial role PAs play in healthcare, providing access to care for millions of patients,” said Tyler Black, CompHealth vice president.
“We are very proud to partner with AAPA to provide PAs career guidance and job opportunities nationwide so they can focus on providing outstanding patient care.”
CompHealth locum tenens positions for PAs include a robust, nationwide network of clinical placement opportunities ranging from a few days to several months, with complete compensation for all travel, malpractice insurance and housing, all at no cost to PAs. PAs enjoy working locum tenens with CompHealth due to the flexibility, compensation, increased experience and how the job opportunities are tailored specifically to their individual preferences. In fact, 81 percent of locum tenens PAs surveyed reported they were either satisfied or highly satisfied with the experience and 95 percent would recommend locum tenens to colleagues.
PAs will have access to all these new services in July 2016 through the AAPA Career Center, which will serve as a complete resource for all PA career needs.
