For many people, the stability of a full-time position is desirable; for others, locum work gives them the freedom they crave. Dr. Yury Rapoport is the Director of the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, as well as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Tufts University.
