Each locum tenens agency is unique. From number and type of jobs to malpractice coverage and online portal assistance, each agency provides something different for healthcare professionals. When you begin looking for an agency to work with, it’s important to do your research and find out exactly what the agency provides before heading out on assignment.


Here are a few key considerations to think about when choosing which locum tenens agency to work with:

Number of jobs: If you’re interested in trying a variety of jobs in states around the country, it pays to look for an agency that offers many options, especially if you hold multiple state licenses.

Malpractice coverage: It's important to compare locum tenens agencies that provide different levels of malpractice insurance coverage. Some agencies don’t offer this coverage at all, while others have limited insurance.

Online portal access: Simplify the process by working with a locum tenens agency that offers an online portal to manage your assignments, fill out your timesheet, and store the documents you need.

Telehealth positions: If you hold multiple state licenses and would prefer to provide care virtually, it’s important to make sure your locum tenens agency offers telehealth options.

PA, NP, and allied professional jobs: If you work as a PA, NP, or in an allied profession, you’ll need to compare locum tenens agencies and determine whether they staff jobs in your specialty.
