Check Out the New MedicalMissions.org
Supporting physicians in their charity work as well as organizations that sponsor medical missions is a big focus for LocumTenens.com. We are proud to announce that we’ve just redesigned and relaunched the MedicalMissions.org website. The new site allows healthcare volunteers to search, favorite, share and apply for mission work. Volunteers can also share their stories and photos about their past mission trips. If you are thinking about a mission trip in the future, you can quickly and easily create a volunteer profile and begin searching for your next mission adventure in minutes.
Also, we’d love to hear your feedback about the new MedicalMissions.org, and ideas you have for future improvements. Send us an e-mail with your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hospital leaders are working on strategies to lessen hospitalist burnout.
