The locum tenens staffing experts at The Locums Company are dedicated to providing easy and effective physician placement services. We provide professional liability coverage by major national underwriters and carriers for all our locum tenens physicians. We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Physicians are paid directly by The Locums Company and do not receive any patient fees. The income TLC physicians generate remains in your practice to pay for your practice coverage.
The Locums Company recognizes that many practices utilize locum tenens to recruit highly qualified physicians for permanent positions. Our personal service continues while we work with you to locate the perfect associate. Many of our physicians have recently completed residency training and are using locum tenens to locate permanent opportunities. Physicians serving in a locum tenens placement provide potential employers an incomparable opportunity to review the doctor’s patient interaction and practice skills as well as their personality and overall capabilities – observations that are not possible in an interview setting. Our services are non-exclusive to allow employers to explore other options as they consider the locum tenens physician. TLC only realizes a fee when the TLC-placed physician is permanently hired.
