The phrase locum tenens comes from two Latin words ‘locum’ meaning ‘place’ and ‘tenens’ meaning ‘to hold’. In the healthcare industry, locum tenens refers to taking temporary shifts in different healthcare facilities.
Locum tenens providers are temporary and/or part-time clinicians who fill in when facilities need additional staff. It is an excellent opportunity for healthcare providers to experience different aspects of their career, choose a work environment and schedule of their choice, and garner experience in a variety of practice settings.
Employing locum tenens physicians and clinicians allows facilities to accommodate staff vacations, illnesses, and seasonal fluctuations. It helps in expanding services or implementing new systems while at the same time eliminating the hassles and administrative costs associated with recruitment, payroll, employment taxes, and benefits.
