Find Your Ideal Locum Physician Job 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 Association of American Medical Colleges (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.
Whether you’re a doctor who is board certified or non-board certified, Barton has an opportunity for you. Our providers enjoy freedom and career flexibility, with short- and long-term opportunities, and even telehealth jobs for physicians. We work with all specialties, too!

Why Should You Become a Locum Tenens Physician?
READ ABOUT WHAT MAKES BEING A LOCUM TENENS DOCTOR A GREAT CAREER PATH
After 35 years of work, calls, and overhead costs at his small critical care practice, Dr. R. Ungerer, pulmonary doctor from California, was ready to move on. But shortly after making the decision to retire, Dr. Ungerer discovered he wasn’t ready to fully leave the field—so he transitioned to locum tenens work, instead.
“Now, I feel that I’m in control, and I’ve been able to decide when and where I work, how long I work, and in what type of situation,” Ungerer said.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE LOCUM TENENS EXPERIENCE
Dr. Mason C. once worked 15 locum tenens assignments through Barton Associates in a span of four years. After having such an incredible amount of exposure to locum tenens, he was able to paint a clear picture of the differences between being a locum, and working as a permanent provider. When we spoke to Dr. Mason C. back in early 2020, he said “Your schedule is very much up to you, and you can see a wealth of different places, meet many different people, and see many ways that medicine can be practiced.”
He also added that locum tenens provides rich opportunity for medical professionals at various stages in their careers. “If you have your own practice somewhere, there are many ideas to bring back. If you are young and just out of training, locum tenens is a wonderful opportunity to see and learn different ways of approaching problems that give you a greater depth of knowledge and experience.” Read more about Dr. Mason C’s story.
Whether you are seeking a seamless transition into retirement, looking for a change of scenery, or anything in between, locum tenens may be the answer for you! Here are some more testimonials from real locums as to why making the switch to locum tenens is the way to go:
