What is Locum Tenens?
Locum tenens is Latin for “holding/possessing/maintaining the position.” In the healthcare industry this term refers to a physician who is filling a temporary assignment. There are many reasons why some doctors choose to pursue locum tenens work. These include: Physicians who have recently completed their residencies, have not established a practice, are interested in trying different assignments, enjoy traveling, tired of managing their own practice, or who are interested in extending the period before retirement.
