Locum tenens: a Latin phrase roughly translated to “one holding a place.”
In modern healthcare, the term ‘locum tenens provider’ refers to a clinician who fills in for another. Simple enough, right? What was once a way for full-time providers to supplement their schedules and increase their income has evolved into an increasingly viable full-time career path for clinicians of all disciplines.
We’ve all seen the healthcare industry experience a massive increase in patient volumes and demand for providers with a complementary shortage of quality clinicians. As a result, the healthcare staffing has grown increasingly more complex and difficult to navigate. Where to even begin? Every assignment, every shift, you are entering into a partnership with your locums company. How do you know who to trust?
Locum tenens doesn’t always get the best reputation. The internet is a never-ending cacophony of positive and negative experiences working with locum tenens companies. Whether it’s compensation negotation, credentialing, payroll , travel accommodations or malpractice coverage – there’s a laundry list of potential risk-factors that need to be considered. That’s where we come in.
A Latin phrase we’ve adopted to be the foundation of how we approach healthcare staffing: ‘Aut inveniam viam aut faciam.’
Roughly translated, ‘We will either find a way or make one.’
