For IHS facilities struggling to stay staffed, locum tenens could be a great way to find providers with whom you want to build relationships for future coverage.


What Is Locum Tenens?

“Locum tenens” is Latin for “holding one’s place.” It’s simply another way to say “contract medical staffing.”

A locum tenens staffing and recruiting agency such as Barton Associates assigns physicians, NPs, PAs, CRNAs and dentists to short- and long-term positions at IHS facilities across the United States.

There is a critical shortage of healthcare providers in the United States — particularly at IHS facilities. This shortage is growing at an alarming rate, and the supply of doctors is not sufficient to meet the needs of IHS facilities and their patients.

As a result, organizations are increasingly turning to locum tenens firms such as Barton Associates for fast and efficient staffing solutions.
