Be an Effective Locum Doctor Online Course overview

Locum doctors face very specific challenges over and above those experienced by their colleagues in permanent posts. These challenges demand dedicated focus to develop and maintain an essential skill-set if you want to at least succeed and, ideally, excel in the role. Whether you are already working as a locum doctor, or simply considering if this type of work is right for you, your CPD activities should cover the entire scope of your practice. So, to help you with this, we’ve created this interactive online course.

You can use this course to either:

    • reflect on your experiences and identify how to improve your current performance
    • or prepare yourself for the challenges, so that you can step into locum work fully prepared and with your eyes wide open.

What’s the format?

  Award for top medical staff training and development company UK 2022 Our instant-access course is divided into 21 short modules. This means you can choose to complete the course in one intensive sitting, or in short bursts whenever you have time. The choice is yours. We take an interactive approach with a mix of text, infographics, videos and reflective exercises to explore the benefits, challenges and specific skills required to excel as a locum doctor. Along the way, the members of our Locum Doctor Panel share their broad and varied experiences through over 90 minutes of video material. When you reach the end of the course, we guide to create your reflective learning statement which you submit to us in order to receive your certificate for 4 CPD points. Our methods provide you with the type of engaging, high-quality learning experiences which are the foundations of our reputation. On average, the course takes around 4 hours to complete. However, you may be able to complete it quicker or prefer to take longer. For example, you may want to consider the questions in the reflective exercises in great depth. In addition, you can revisit the materials as often as you like during your 120 day subscription period. We’ve reached our timing estimate based on factors such as combined length of video materials, total word count and average reading speeds.
