Become a Locum Tenens Physician

Earn more, see more, experience more, as a locum physician with Barton Associates

The number of physician locum tenens jobs grows every day as more companies, practices, and hospitals turn to locum tenens physicians to fill their vacant positions. To put it in plain terms, demand is high and supply is low. 

The combination of an aging population, an increase in insured Americans, an aging physician workforce, and a limit on the number of residency spots, has led the AAMC to estimate that the United States could face a shortage of as many as 139,000 physicians by 2033. Locum tenens physicians help to solve this problem.
