Why Consider Locum Tenens?

Locum tenens (Latin for “one holding a place”) providers temporarily fulfill the duties of other practitioners—most typically when regular clinicians are absent, or a hospital or practice is short-staffed. The looming physician shortage, demographic shifts, and other pertinent factors have increased the demand for locum tenens physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and CRNAs across the United States and beyond. With the range of opportunities available today, it is an ideal time to consider the practice alternative.

As a Resident or Fellow, the anticipation of starting your job search can be overwhelming.  We are here to help!  Medicus Healthcare Solutions is a leader in the physician staffing industry, providing jobs each year for hundreds of physicians completing residency and fellowship programs.  We will assign a Physician Advisor to be your dedicated resource assisting in your search for the perfect permanent or locum opportunity.
