As the aging patient population continues to stretch the already thin ranks of providers, more and more hospitals and medical facilities are turning to locum tenens physicians and advanced practitioners to fill the voids. Whether you are completely new to the locum tenens way of doing things or experienced with working with medical staffing companies, we encourage you to try the Lucidity solution, where providers can browse jobs and apply at any time, and you can log in to see who’s ready to go to work.
How to work with a staffing agency to hire a locum tenens physician
In order to hire a locum tenens physician or advanced practitioner through a staffing agency like Lucidity, our staffing specialists will work to learn about your preferences and requirements to keep your healthcare facility running at the highest possible standard. We offer two options, self-service or managed service, so you can be as hands-on or hands-off in the hiring process as you’d like.
Posting your job to Lucidity is completely free. As soon as your job is in our system, our algorithm goes to work finding the best providers in our system for the job and notifies them of the match. Many temporary healthcare staffing agencies, including Lucidity, provide services such as contracting, credentialing, state licensing (if needed), travel and living arrangements, and act as the liaison during the negotiation process.
We understand that the timeline for temporary physician or advanced practitioner jobs can range from a few days to up to two years. Lucidity can accommodate jobs that are locum tenens only, locum to perm, or direct hire.
