Locum Tenens

What exactly is a Locum Tenens?

Latin phrase meaning “to stand in another’s place”.   A person who temporarily fulfills the duties of another. For example, a Locum doctor is a doctor who works in the place of the regular doctor when that doctor is absent, or when a hospital/practice is short-staffed. These professionals are still governed by their respective regulatory bodies, despite the transient nature of their medical positions.

What is more important is how does this definition fit you and how can you make locum opportunities work in your current situation.

Advanced Care Providers specializes in practice settings that utilize Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners.  A locum assignment is any shift that a medical facility has requested ACP coverage from our professionals.  Once we receive the assignment, we contact our pool of providers that fit the description of the practice.  Likewise, we also match the providers request with the facility so your services are utilized in a setting that you are comfortable in.
