The Locum Tenens Market for Pediatric MDs, DOs, NPs, and PAs

Unlock thrilling travel experiences while earning more with pediatric locums! According to the Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) in its 2022 Locum Tenens Market Growth Assessment, there will be a projected shortage of specialty providers, including pediatric professionals by 2034. As shortages of pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants grow across the country, more healthcare organizations are utilizing locum tenens pediatric professionals to fill gaps in coverage. 

While the employment for pediatric DOs, pediatric MDs, pediatric NPs, and pediatric PAs is expected to increase by 7%, 52%, and 31%, respectively throughout the next 10 years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the father of modern pediatrics would have never expected the locum tenens market to be booming at an annual growth rate of an astounding 27%, as reported by SIA. This rapid growth is creating thousands of exciting new locum  opportunities for pediatric locums nationwide!
