Locum Video: The Changing Reputation of Locum Tenens

Welcome to Staff Care's Locum Video Series, where we examine some of the most pressing issues facing the healthcare staffing industry. Today's video discusses the changing reputation of locum tenens professionals in the healthcare workplace. Check out more videos in our Locum Video series here.

As the ongoing physician shortage and the effects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) continue to reverberate throughout the healthcare industry, the need is increasing to recruit skilled physicians and advanced practitioners for locum tenens positions.

Given this background, it's of little surprise that the industry in general is warming to locum tenens workers. Where locums doctors, NPs and PAs were once sometimes welcomed less than warmly, today's locums professionals can expect to be received at a new assignment with appreciation and even gratitude.

And that's an essential component to performing well in any position, as our panel of physician experts agree. As this locum video illustrates, the improved reputation of locum tenens workers over the past decade is a boon not only to the physicians and practitioners working locums jobs, it's also great news for the facilities where they work.
