This is National Locum Tenens Week

August 13, 2018

This week is National Locum Tenens Week. It’s an annual event led by the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations, the association of staffing firms providing temporary physicians.

“We’re proud to lead our industry again in acknowledging those physicians who devote themselves to practicing locum tenens and show our appreciation for their dedication in serving patients throughout our communities,” NALTO President Stacey Stanley said.

Locum tenens are temporary doctors, and the US locum tenens market is estimated by Staffing Industry Analysts at $4.1 billion for this year.

Among the healthcare staffing firms celebrating National Locum Tenens Week is Medical Doctor Associates.

“Medical Doctor Associates is extremely proud of the physicians and advanced practitioners who provide locum tenens services to our clients nationwide,” said Tim Fisher, the firm’s president. “They serve on the front lines of hospitals and healthcare facilities currently struggling to maintain a balance between supply and demand.”

This week is also “Safe + Sound Week.”
