“Locum tenens” is a Latin phrase that loosely translates to mean “to hold a place.” A locum tenens physician or advanced practitioner temporarily fills in for another during vacations, maternity leave, conferences and other absences. While emergency coverage has been the traditional use for locum tenens providers, in recent years, they have also been used to launch new services or fight burnout among a facility’s permanent staff. Physicians and advanced practitioners who work locum tenens enjoy greater flexibility in their schedules and are able to focus on the reason they got into medicine in the first place – patient care. Focus on your priorities while providing quality care to your patients.
