About the Industry
The term locum tenens is Latin for “to hold the place of, to substitute for.” In the medical industry, locum tenens physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners are healthcare providers who provide temporary staffing support to hospitals, private practices, and companies.
The locum tenens industry was started in the early 1970’s in Utah to help physicians provide medical health to rural areas of the country. The model proved successful and locum tenens agencies began placing temporary healthcare providers in hospitals private practices, and companies all over the country.
The locum tenens industry continues to grow today. The Affordable Care Act and the aging population have increased demand for medial services. So much so that in 2013, 90% of healthcare organizations used a locum tenens provider at some point during the year to maintain their staffing levels.
At the same time, tens of thousands of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dentists, and others work locum tenens assignments, taking advantage of the freedom, flexibility, and earning potential that comes with being an independent locum tenens provider.
With so much interest and demand for locum tenens providers, now is a great time to be a part of this rapidly growing industry!

I have been working at Barton Associates full-time (more than an year)Pros
Barton Associates is a great place to work if you are looking to develop a lasting career. Managers have been built from entry-level employees and offer their teams knowledgeable feedback and training from first-hand experience. The company is focused on training for all employees and provides continuous growth which gives employees motivation to beat goals and push themselves. The atmosphere is energetic and fun. The managers I have been exposed to and worked with have maintained a mindset of hard work being rewarded with tangible rewards, as well as office lunches, team building activities, and "free time" from the office. Being a support employee I have experienced a great work-life balance with the understanding of my manager and have experienced substantial career growth and financial growth in my two years of employment. Another thing I appreciate is being able to contribute to the local community through various fundraising events, such as dress down days, that Barton Associates holds. Being a full time employee, I don't have too much free time to volunteer and this is a chance for me to give back to the community.Cons
Both sales and support positions are fast-paced and can be challenging. The industry and company is growing quickly and this requires employees to think quickly, stay focused and put in hard work. To be successful an employee needs to have drive and motivation. The time off policy of waiting to accrue paid time off could be a little more flexible. More rewards and contests for support staff employees would also be beneficial.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
