What Is Locum Tenens?

If you’re a physician, NP, PA, or dentist, you know how difficult a career in healthcare can be. Long hours, school loans, and high patient loads are just a fraction of what you have to deal with. As a result, many healthcare professionals look to locum tenens as an option for their next career move

For those not fluent in Latin, “locum tenens” translates to “place holder.” In the medical world, it simply refers to providers who take on short-term jobs to fill gaps created by staffing shortages at hospitals, private practices, and companies.
