Locum Tenens

Where do you want to go today?

In Latin, locum tenens means, “to hold a place.”

Locum tenens fill in for other physicians on a temporary basis. Hospitals and healthcare facilities often have staffing gaps due to vacancies, illness, leave and other causes. They lean on locum tenens to fill those vacancies.

When you choose locum tenens, you can work in your local community or you can travel, delivering services where they are needed. Locum tenens is a great way to supplement your income, gain experience post-residency, achieve more flexibility in your schedule, or travel while you work either before you raise a family or after your children have left the nest.

As a leading locum tenens placement agency, we place professionals in facilities across Canada, the U.S. and around the world. For the duration of your contract, you will live like a local in your new short-term home.

IntelliStaff Medical can place Canadian professionals in Canada, Canadian professionals in the U.S., and U.S. professionals in the U.S. What are you waiting for? Start your next adventure today.
