What Is Locum Tenens?

“Locum tenens” is Latin for “holding one’s place.” It’s simply another way to say “contract medical staffing.”

A contract medical staffing and recruiting agency such as Barton Associates assigns physicians, NPs, PAs, dentists and CRNAs to short- and long-term positions at hospitals, medical practices, and IME companies across the United States.

There is a critical shortage of healthcare providers in the United States — and this shortage is growing at an alarming rate. In many markets and areas of practice, the supply of doctors is not sufficient to meet the needs of healthcare practices and their patients.

As a result, organizations are increasingly turning to locum tenens firms such as Barton Associates for fast and efficient staffing solutions.
