We Invented Locum Tenens Staffing

Locum Tenens
"Locum Tenens" is taken from the Latin "to hold the place of, to substitute for", and means in layman''s terms, a temporary physician.

CompHealth invented locum tenens staffing over twenty years ago, and we''ve improved it every day since. Even though we offer the most locations, most practice settings, most specialties, and most opportunities in the industry, we are as restless as we were the day we scheduled the first locum tenens assignment. We are obsessed with making our invention better.

Locum tenens is a great option for physicians that are just finishing residency and want to try out different locations and practice settings before making a permanent commitment. It is also an option that many seasoned physicians, who are not ready to retire, but want to scale down the rigors and administrative hassles of full-time practice. All these benefits and you get to see the country and continue to make a good income.

Once you are credentialed with CompHealth, your representative will present you with assignments that meet your criteria. You choose whether or not to accept any assignment presented. If you accept an assignment, CompHealth will help process, and pay for a state license if necessary, arrange your travel, housing and local transportation. We will do a thorough screening of the practice and provide you orientation information. While on assignment CompHealth provides malpractice insurance (occurrence based), and will direct deposit your compensation since you are away from home. We also make sure someone is available around the clock for any emergencies or just to answer questions. It couldn''t be easier!

Not only does CompHealth provide exceptional service and attention to details, we also provide more choices than any other locum tenens company. When you decide to become a locum tenens physician, you should be getting freedom and flexibility, and you should have options to choose from in a variety of locations and practice settings. CompHealth delivers this and more.
