Locum Tenens Providers

Locum Tenens comes from a latin phrase that means “to hold the place of, to substitute for.”

Here are just a few of the many reasons why physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and dentists explore locum tenens opportunities:

  • Additional income
  • Weekend work
  • Recent graduate seeking permanent/locum work
  • Retired and still want to keep up skills
  • Control your own schedule
  • Personal life transition
  • Find a practice that’s a good fit for you before applying for a full-time position
  • Want to see the country/world before relocating geographically

Simply contact one of our experienced recruiters by discussing your job placement goals and objectives. Whether you’re seeking immediately, or coming out of retirement or perhaps seeking employment after graduation. It is our goal to help you through the application process by collecting and reviewing your background credentials and discussing assignments that may interest you.

At Physician Solutions, we allow you the opportunity to review all assignment options and have you sign a non-binding agreement to work with our team. Once you express an interest in a position, we will then present your CV and credentials to the Practice Administrator or Human Resource Team and schedule an on-site interview. You are not obligated until you fully accept a specific assignment as outlined in each job description.

Locum Tenens assignments may vary uniquely depending upon the situation of the Practice or Healthcare Organization. Bottom line, we you give the option of working part or all of the assignment and provide an understanding approach to your job placement goals.
