LocumTenens.com survey shows that 51% of physicians choose medical career because of a significant personal experience

ALPHARETTA, GA December 7, 2010 - LocumTenens.com's 2010 Compensation and Employment Survey reveals that 51% of physicians choose a career in healthcare based on a significant personal experience, including observing family members in healthcare careers and first-hand experience with death or illness.

Survey findings are released in the inaugural issue of a new ebook series, entitled Vox Medici, dedicated to giving physicians a public forum in which to share their experiences and opinions. This ebook showcases dozens of physicians' stories about why they chose a career in medicine and why they continue to practice medicine in spite of all of its challenges.

"Because we work so closely with our physicians, we get to hear their stories on a daily basis," Shane Jackson, president of LocumTenens.com, said. "This new LocumTenens.com ebook series allows us to share some of those stories and show the human side of this business"
