Show Notes

In this episode of BackTable ENT, Dr. Gopi Shah and Dr. Ashley Agan interview Dr. Allison Royer, a private practice ENT who co-founded ENT Surgery Solutions, a staffing company that organizes ENT locums.

First, Dr. Royer shares her transition from being a hospital-employed ENT to becoming a locum physician with her husband. Once they met other locum physicians and heard about their experiences, they decided to start their own locum staffing company. Dr. Royer believes ENT Surgery Solutions is unique because it is managed directly by ENT physicians; Dr. Royer and her husband directly work with the doctors they employ to find work opportunities that will fit their unique needs. Although ENT Surgery Solutions is primarily Midwest-based, it is quickly expanding in the West and South.

Next, Dr. Royer transitions to discussing why many doctors are moving toward locums work. She explains that because many small private practice groups and community hospitals have been bought by hospital systems, there are now significant call burdens needing to be covered by small ENT groups. For this reason, many ENTs decide to do locums in order to balance work and life. Additionally, with locums, doctors don’t have to renegotiate their salaries or their call schedules. Finally, Dr. Royer highlights that locums are fun for her because she likes to work in different hospitals and ORs and see different patient populations and pathology.
