Barton and Locum Tenens

Locum tenens is a form of healthcare staffing that offers healthcare providers career growth, flexibility, the ability to travel and new opportunities.

There is a critical shortage of healthcare providers in the United States — and this shortage is growing at an alarming rate. In many markets and areas of practice, the supply of doctors is not sufficient to meet patient needs.

As a result, organizations are increasingly turning to Barton Associates to solve their staffing challenges, ensure patient access and continuity of care, and generate revenue. With the ever-increasing demand for healthcare services and the flexibility and benefits of practicing medicine as a locum tenens provider, more and more physiciansnurse practitionersphysician assistantsdentists and CRNAs are making locum tenens their career of choice.
