Job Description & Requirements
General Practitioner - Physician - (General Practice - GP) Locum Tenens
StartDate: ASAP Available Shifts: Varied Shift

Our client's mission is to assist the VA with their current backlog of compensation and pension evaluations nationwide. They have partnered with Staff Care to ensure they complete their mission. At this time, American military Veterans may have to wait over a year for their claims to be processed, and even longer to receive their benefits checks. With the help of contractors like our client, the VA is working hard to minimize that time spent waiting. These one-time visit non-adversarial exams do NOT involve treatment. Each evaluation consists of a review of the veteran's subjective complaints (history) followed by the examination itself. This exam is guided with ease by virtual templates (worksheets called Disability Benefits Questionnaire, or DBQ for short) on our secure website. Once the questions are completed and diagnostics are reviewed, the doctor or trusted staff member simply submits the form to us online.

A general practice physician(locum tenens), like a family care doctor, provides primary and ongoing care for their patients, usually serving as the first point of contact when a medical issue arises. These physicians are trained to deal with both the physical and emotional aspects of medicine, often forging lasting bonds with patients and families over generations. Often times, GPs run specialized practices within their offices, providing their patients with specialized treatments in certain medical areas, such as obstetrics, instead of having to refer the patient to another physician.
