I asked our event sponsor, Judith Babich of Active Locums Pty Ltd, to tell us a little about her agency and its involvement with Creative Doctors:
"Over the years, Active Locums Pty Ltd have had an interesting and eclectic mix of talented doctors registered and working through our agency who have also had careers outside of medicine. These included an actor, an opera singer, a number of aspiring writers and some classically trained musicians and dancers.Creative Doctors is a group that aims to nurture creativity in doctors and encourage a healthy work-life balance, something that is also strongly encouraged by Judith Babich, the Director of Active Locums Pty Ltd. The relationship between Active Locums and Creative Doctors began when we realised that some of our doctors had these extraordinary creative talents and the relationship has blossomed ever since.
The flexibility of locum work is a great way to allow time for artistic pursuits, and the arts can also be a great outlet to relieve some of the stress associated with a medical career and to be able to experience the joy of work and living.
Our agency is also a proud sponsor of the NSW Doctors Orchestra (Musicus Medicus).
Active Locums Pty Ltd (click here to go to the website) is an accredited locum agency that supplies medical staff for metropolitan and rural public, private hospitals and general practices in NSW and throughout Australia. Our locums work in all areas and from RMO up to consultant level. Whilst we are a happy to assist all locums, our agency has a particular interest in Mental Health, Aboriginal Health, and rural placements. At Active Locums Pty Ltd, we strive to support our doctors in every possible way, from their locum work and career goals to their creative pursuits. Judith has completed a Certificate in Careers Counselling from RMIT and we are pleased to offer a free career counselling service. We welcome new doctors to register with us, to take control of their medical career and enjoy the flexibility of life as a locum. Rates of pay are excellent and can relieve the concern of funding a year of studying for specialist training exams, planning for any overseas trip or gap year, or even paying down some of the mortgage.
Active Locums Pty Ltd is always looking for experienced doctors to join our agency. We have a “refer a friend or colleague” reward program in place which offers a Visa giftcard or a donation to your nominated charity to anyone who refers a doctor who successfully registers and undertakes their first locum shifts with us. If you meet any doctors (GPs, RMOs, Registrars, or VMOs) who might be considering a change or are planning to study, we would be very appreciative if you recommend Active Locums Pty Ltd to them. Please remind them to mention your name to us as the referring doctor!
