Locum Tenens FAQS

What Is Locum Tenens?

“Locum tenens,” a Latin term, translates to “one who holds the place (of another).” In modern medicine, it refers to temporary physicians who fill short-term staffing needs, cover for vacationing doctors, bolster facilities during peak times, or explore potential permanent positions. These roles span solo practices, medical groups, and hospitals, offering a unique chance to experience diverse settings and boost income.

Is Locum Tenens Right for Me?

Whether locum tenens suits your career goals depends on your personal and professional aspirations. It allows you to sample different practice environments and locations before committing to a permanent position. With Trusted Locum Staffing support covering licensure, malpractice, travel, and housing, physicians, PAs, and NPs can focus on patient care and networking with colleagues nationwide. It’s a popular choice for recent graduates seeking varied experiences before settling down.

How Long Are Locum Tenens Assignments?

Assignment durations vary but typically range from two weeks to two months, tailored to individual preferences and needs. Some physicians may even receive permanent offers from their temporary placements, highlighting the mutual benefits of the “test drive” approach.

Where Will I Stay?

Accommodation varies based on assignment length and location, ranging from apartments and hotels to private homes. While short-term assignments typically don’t accommodate family members, longer placements may offer options for spouses and children.

What About Malpractice Coverage?

Attention to malpractice insurance is crucial. Reputable firms maintain comprehensive coverage, but it’s essential for physicians to inquire about coverage details, including limits, admitted states, and carrier ratings, to ensure adequate protection.

Will I Be Accepted Professionally?

Today, temporary physicians are well-regarded within the medical community, thanks to stringent referencing and licensure procedures implemented by staffing firms and healthcare facilities. Patients also trust temporary doctors, recognizing their qualifications and experience.

How Does Locums Pay and Salary Work?

You will be paid as a 1099 independent contractor, meaning you assume responsibility for handling your tax obligations. Unlike traditional employment where taxes are withheld from your paycheck, as a 1099 contractor, you are required to calculate and pay your taxes independently. This entails setting aside a portion of your earnings to cover federal, state, and possibly local taxes, as well as self-employment taxes, which contribute to Social Security and Medicare. It’s advisable to consult with a tax professional to ensure compliance with tax regulations and to efficiently manage your financial responsibilities as an independent contractor.

What Paperwork is Required?

Prior to confirmation of your locum tenens assignment, you will generally be required to provide the following documentation:

  • A fully filled-out application and any additional supplementary forms
  • A signed agency agreement
  • State Licenses
  • DEA and CDS (As applicable by state)
  • Medical Education and Training Certificates
  • An updated curriculum vitae (CV)
  • Peer references
  • W-9 Form
How Long Does it Take to Start a Locum Tenens Position?
The timeframe for securing a locum tenens position varies based on factors such as paperwork completion, reference availability, and individual circumstances, ranging from a few days to several months. Trusted Locum Staffing provides assistance throughout the credentialing and privileging process, in addition to facilitating the hiring facility’s own credentialing and privileging procedures, where applicable.
