Choosing an Alternative Practice Style in an Era of Provider Shortages and Burnout

The practice of one physician filling in for another - known as locum tenens - is time-honored in the medical profession. 

But why do physicians and APPs choose to work locum tenens – particularly in an era of pervasive provider shortages and burnout? What effect does this choice have on the overall supply of physicians and APPs? How do physicians and APPs compare locum tenens work to permanent practice? 

AMN Healthcare’s 2024 Survey of Locum Tenens Physicians and Advanced Practitioners provides insights into the experiences, perspectives and demographics of physicians and APPS working locum tenens.
