Perspectives on the locum tenens industry

Serving up health care with heart

As a physician, the desire to help others is inherent. That’s why locum tenens is an easy career choice.

Locum tenens doctors help underserved patients by stepping in when they’re needed most. Whether physicians service in a rural farm community, low-income district, or urban location, locum tenens provides access to care where it might not otherwise exist, so patients will receiv the high-quality care they depend on. In fact, more than 20 million people will see a doctor this year thanks to locum tenens.
As the physician-patient gap continues to grow, locum physicians and their highly valued services are needed now more than ever. At Interim Physicians, we believe locum tenens is much more than simply filling a shift; we believe in providing Healthcare with Heart: patient care that goes beyond the bare minimum and strives to set a new precedent for care. To us, Healthcare with Heart means providing quality-assured physicians who want to make a difference in the communities they serve.

Just as our own heart serves each of us life, we at IP combine and dedicate our hearts humbly as one, so our client’s patients can attain a better life through the selfless service of our Providers! explains Greg Stelmach, Senior Physician Recruiter at Interim Physicians.
