What is Locum Tenens?

Locum Tenens is a Latin phrase meaning "to hold a place". Locum tenens has become the industry term used to describe healthcare providers who take temporary positions at healthcare facilities. Hospitals, clinics, and medical groups typically use locum tenens providers to fill both short and long-term absences due to vacations, medical leaves, or gap coverage.

Can I work as a locum physician if I am a resident or fellow?

Yes. Locum tenens is an appealing option for residents and fellows, as it gives them the opportunity to try different healthcare facilities prior to committing to a permanent position. Most young physicians also have a considerable amount of outstanding debt when they finish residency. Locum tenens allows an additional way to pay down student loans more quickly, which can save thousands of dollars in interest.
