What is Locum Tenens Urology?

Locum tenens, a Latin phrase meaning "to hold the place of," play a vital role in resolving staffing deficits in healthcare across the country. With a career in locum tenens urology, you temporarily fill a shift at a hospital, clinic, private practice, or other healthcare facilities, ensuring patients and communities have continuous access to urology care.

Due to an aging population and many urologists reaching retirement age, the demand for urology care is projected to increase. Currently, the average age of urologists is 55, with 29.8% aged 65 and older. Projections indicate that by 2030, we will experience the lowest number of urologists per capita – just 3.3 urologists per 100,000 people. Recovering from this shortage is expected to take until 2050. By utilizing urology locums, healthcare facilities can ensure uninterrupted urology care, bridging coverage gaps and maintaining a smooth workflow within the healthcare system.

The escalating scarcity of urologists has imposed a substantial strain on the current permanent staff, resulting in increased workloads and a surge in burnout rates. In a report done by Medscape, 73% of urologists reported being burnt out due to bureaucratic tasks, while 32% attributed their burnout to a lack of autonomy. Locum tenens is a career choice that provides urologists with greater schedule flexibility and lessens the chance of burnout while still guaranteeing that patients get the essential urology treatment they require.
