Considerations for Choosing a Locum Tenens Company
With annual U.S. revenue estimated at approximately $2 billion, the locum tenens industry consists of more than 100 agencies nationwide. These locum tenens companies range in size from one or two recruiters working a single geography to staffs of more than 100 recruiters, account executives and support personnel in multiple offices across the country. Some firms even provide international placements.
NALTO and Industry Networking
While assisting the continuous education of locum tenens physicians, recruiters and clients, NALTO provides a forum for exchanging ideas about industry standards, market trends and the ethical business relationships. The organization’s primary objectives include promoting a positive industry image, increasing member market share, and driving a peer review process based on excellence, honesty and fairness.
Beyond NALTO membership it’s best to ask colleagues who have worked on a locum tenens basis/contracted for a locum tenens physician about the agencies they used and how they would rate their experience(s).
Next, review agency websites and talk with representatives from several locum tenens firms to compare work processes and practices.
