In the medical community, working locum tenens means you
are filling in at a hospital or other healthcare facility because of
staffing shortages. Working as a locum tenens doctor, you enjoy getting
paid a premium while also making your own schedule.
Many doctors work locum tenens in addition to their
full time position. Younger doctors may want to earn extra income or
experience different clinical environments, while older doctors may use
it as a means of maintaining a part-time schedule.
