Dr. Noel Lumpkin
President, Locum Tenens Physician & Anesthesiologist at Northwest Anesthesia Providers Service LLC

Dr. Lumpkin has been an anesthesiologist for twenty years and has spent over fourteen years as a locum tenens physician. She went to medical school at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri and did her anesthesiology residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and a fellowship at Virginia Mason Hospital which brought her to the Pacific Northwest where she still resides. As a locum tenens physician, she has found that many people, including physicians still do not understand what a locum tenens physician does much less how to function as one or even hire one. Despite the fact that locum tenens is a billion dollar industry in the US – and still growing, many find the concept mystifying. To answer some of the questions, Dr. Lumpkin published a book, Road Warrior Physician. In it, she details some of the processes involved as well as some helpful tints and anecdotes. Today’s talk will uncover some of the mystery that is locum tenens.
