Salary + benefits + lodging + meals + incidentals equals a better compensation package for your Locum Tenens work than you’ll find elsewhere. In addition to the gratification of serving America’s Veterans, our Locum Tenens professionals receive compensation that matches their dedication.
VA physicians earn market pay that is designed to be competitive with local physician labor markets. Exact starting salary is determined by a physician compensation pay panel and is commensurate with your education and experience. Contact a recruiter today to discuss your potential pay range.
Liability protection: When weighing your options, you’ll want to consider the fact that VA Locum Tenens health care providers are entitled to liability protection during and after their career at VA for VA patient care services. There are no fees or salary deductions associated with this protection. More importantly, there is no tail to pay if you leave.
VA’s travel package is first-class and in addition to the salary you earn. It includes paid travel expenses, lodging, meals, and incidentals. Since we reimburse you according to GSA Domestic Per Diem Rates, our travel package is comparable to full-time government service.
