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.

Today, this industry continues to rapidly grow. The Affordable Care Act and the aging population have increased demand for medical 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 (Less than a year)


    Positive atmosphere, emphasis on continual training, competent, supportive and encouraging management. Tons of growth potential as an individual and on the management end of things. A great place to work!


    Difficult job to learn, easy for a lot of people to quit before giving it an honest attempt. It can be frustrating at times and feel like you've hit a wall, but management is consistently supportive in helping you to move forward.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Barton Associates (West Palm Beach, FL) in July 2016.


    Typically there is a phone interview. If you do well on the phone interview they'll ask you to come in for an in-person interview. They usually decide pretty quickly whether you're a good fit or not so you should here back back within a day or so on their decision.
