Why Locum Tenens?

Boost your income, focus on delivering care & let us handle the details

When you chose medicine, you probably didn't imagine how much paperwork and administrative stressors come with practicing. With locum tenens from Interim Physicians, you can enjoy a more flexible work schedule, earn extra income, and work in underserved areas.

Physicians working on a locum tenens (temporary) basis have traditionally taken over for other physicians for decades as a professional courtesy during vacations, illnesses, or other life events that require time away.

More than 20 million people will see a doctor this year thanks to locum tenens. In fact, 9 out of 10 facilities rely on locum tenens to ensure their patients get treatment. Many doctors even work locums full time.
