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 (More than a year)


    I have been with Barton almost 2 1/2 years and I have truly enjoyed my time here so far. I feel as if I am apart of a big close knit Barton family. Very work hard/play hard type of atmosphere. I like that it is a group atmosphere to a certain extent but at the end of the day a very independent job. When it comes to the opportunity you have here, success is in your own hands. Does not matter about seniority, but about how hard you work. If you grind then it will pay off and you will start to make the kind of money here that you would have no chance at making anywhere else. What I made in my second year over doubled my pay in my first year and it is only going to continue to go up as long as I don't take my foot off of the gas. When it comes to management I have really enjoyed being a manager and the perks that come along with that but I like that it is perfectly fine if someone wanted to step down and just be an independent. Managers are only promoted from within, never hired from the outside to come in and boss people around. The opportunity to keep moving up is insane here. The boss that runs our whole office started about 5 yrs ago in another office ground zero as an associate account manager, she is truly inspiring with everything she does.


    Things constantly change with the clients/providers that are out of your control so you have to be able to roll with the punches and keep going. If you take your foot off of the gas for too long then it could really hurt you a few months down the line. This is a paid for production type of job, though you have a very healthy base pay (that increases) you do not want to settle with that. To be able to make it through the grind of the first 6 months you have to be able to see the big picture of the opportunity at hand. If you can make it over the initial humps then things take off and snowball!

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barton Associates.


    2-part interview with three interviewers in total. The questions asked were fairly repetitive, something possibly done on purpose to test one's ability to keep a straight and enthusiastic face.
