Locum Tenens Internal Medicine Physicians
Internal medicine physicians, or internists, have experienced increasing demand in recent years in both primary and acute care settings. This is due in part to the country’s growing number of insured adults through healthcare reform, an aging population with more chronic conditions, and a greater emphasis on preventive care. This spike in demand is also causing growth in the number of temporary (i.e. locum tenens) internal medicine jobs available for generalists and subspecialists.
