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 organizations.
Partnering with a locum tenens company gives you the flexibility to overcome a variety of staffing challenges by providing coverage for unexpected absences, vacations, and illnesses, or to tide you over while you’re recruiting and onboarding a permanent provider.
