Locum Heroes

Practicing medicine is a selfless pursuit— and for many locum tenens providers, giving back is a way of life. Barton Associates wants to recognize locums who make a difference while on or off assignment, reward them and donate to a cause they feel strongly about. Click and nominate your favorite Locum Hero

How it Works

Nomination Rules

We recognize the exceptional work that locum tenens providers do every day, and we also know of some locums who practice charity at the highest level. Whether they choose assignments in underserved areas, make a difference in a facility affected by a staffing shortage, dedicate their time between contracts to make a difference in their community, or help humankind by providing their skills or resources, Barton Associates is honored to work with these “locum heroes”.

Each year, Barton Associates calls for nominations of locum providers who go above and beyond in their daily lives. It doesn’t matter if they’ve done one locum assignment or many, as long as they’ve made a difference. For these individuals, service goes beyond care for individual patients. We love to hear their stories and recognize the compassionate work they do.

Providers can nominate themselves or someone they know. A link to the nomination page will be provided in the months leading up to the campaign, so keep an eye on your inbox, our social media pages, and our blog so you don't miss out.

The Process

What to expect


Nominated healthcare providers must have worked at least one locum tenens assignment within the year of the event through any locum tenens staffing agency, and be able to show proof of assignment. All nominations must be sent within the provided time period. Locum Heroes typically begins in the spring each year. Specific dates will be provided as the campaign gets closer.


The chosen Locum Hero will be recognized with a $2,500 donation made in their name to the charity of their choice, and a $2,500 award for themselves!


After all of the nominations are received, a panel of healthcare providers will select one deserving provider as Barton Associates Locum Hero. The judges all have different medical backgrounds and specialties.
