What Should a Locum Tenens CV Include?
A good locum tenens CV highlights your past and present experience while setting you apart from other candidates applying to the same position. Below is a list of everything a good locum tenens CV should include.
Besides standard contact information (like first name, last name, and phone number), you can add helpful information like the best days and times to reach you so do not have to field calls during inconvenient moments.
Here you should include the college/university you attended, as well as the degree you earned. Remember to add the dates you attended as well.
Licenses and Certifications
List all active licensure and certifications. If you know your license number and expiration date, include it to make it easier for your information to be verified by credentialing teams. After all, the quicker your information can be verified, the sooner you will be ready for an assignment.
Graduate Medical Training
List all internships, residency programs, or fellowships you completed. Remember to include the name of the facility/training program, and dates attended.
Provide a list of your professional experience chronologically starting from your most recent experience. It may be hard to remember the exact dates of your professional experience, but do your best to estimate. If there are any gaps in employment make sure to address them.
Honors and Awards / Publications and Presentations /Memberships and Associations
Here is where you can highlight what sets you apart from other candidates. Include professional honors and awards you received.
