Locum Tenens can help
Whether you represent a single hospital, a private practice, or a large group, you’re likely to feel the effects of the projected shortages and/or burnout. Locum tenens providers help combat this deficit by filling in where they are needed, and with the shortages estimated these needs can only grow.
Locum Tenens providers are able to help in the following ways:
- Providing quality care and coverage at understaffed facilities.
- Offering flexible schedules to fill specific needs.
- Relieving providers burdened by symptoms of burnout.
