What is Locum Tenens?

Locum tenens is a Latin phrase that means, "holding one's place.” In a healthcare or hospital setting, locum tenens positions fill both short and long-term gaps in coverage. The most common uses for locum tenens are to cover conferences, vacations, illness, or filling an ongoing vacancy.

How Locum Tenens Works

As a locum tenens provider, you accept positions based on an agreed upon timeframe, schedule, and rate. Hayes Healthcare pays on a bi-weekly basis. Federal income tax withholding and reporting are up to the individual. Ask your tax advisor about the many benefits of working as an independent contractor.
