Report Locum vs Part Time vs Full Time in Diagnostics, Imaging, and Therapeutics Residencies Posted February 9 On 2/1/2021 at 2:40 PM, W0lfgang said: I work full time hours some weeks and few hours per day other weeks. Nowadays, you need a fellowship and experience to land a job, even in the community. If you have to take a full time job, there is always opportunity to go down in time once you're established. Investments, hobbies, exercise, cooking, anything you want! Residency was tough, but not tougher than other specialties. It's also temporary. I have a lot of control of my life now as a staff. I don't think anyone should pick a specialty based on what they have been told about the residency experience. Thanks for sharing!
