Locum Tenens Gastroenterologists

What is Locum Tenens Gastroenterology?

"Locum tenens," a Latin phrase meaning "to hold the place of," plays a vital role in addressing healthcare staffing shortages across the nation. As a locum tenens gastroenterology physician, you step in temporarily to cover shifts at hospitals, clinics, private practices, and other healthcare facilities, guaranteeing uninterrupted access to essential gastroenterology services for patients and communities.

Due to an aging population and an increased need for GI care, the demand for gastroenterologists is projected to increase. Currently, there are approximately 20,830 people per active gastroenterologist, and by 2025, gastroenterology is projected to have a shortage of 1,630 physicians. By employing gastroenterology locums, healthcare facilities can ensure patients have access to continuous and timely GI care.

As shortages of gastroenterologists persist, it places a significant burden on the existing staff, resulting in increased workloads and heightened burnout rates. Last year, 64% of gastroenterologists reported being burnt out due to bureaucratic tasks, while 41% attributed their burnout to a lack of autonomy. Choosing locum tenens as a career path provides gastroenterologists with increased control over their schedules and mitigates the risk of burnout, all the while ensuring that patients receive the essential gastrointestinal care they require.
