Welcome to Locum Tenens Week 2019!


Wapiti Medical Staffing is joining other firms from around the healthcare staffing industry to celebrate National Locum Tenens Week, August 12-16, 2019. Led by the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations (NALTO®), this annual celebration serves to highlight the impact of the temporary physician workforce on U.S. healthcare delivery.

According to recent studies, 90% of U.S. healthcare facilities use locum tenens providers annually. Over 50,000 physicians work locum tenens assignments each year, caring for an estimated 7.5 million Americans. The locum tenens staffing industry is now a permanent fixture to combat the nation’s ongoing shortage of doctors.

Wapiti Medical Staffing has worked in the locum tenens staffing industry for more than 20 years – but that is not the only thing we do. We offer a range of healthcare staffing services to meet the specific needs of our clients, including part-time contracts, full-time contracts, and perm placement staffing. Wapiti has contact with thousands of healthcare providers from all over the country who are looking for opportunities.

The vision of Wapiti Medical Staffing is to improve the well-being of the communities we serve: one employee, one healthcare provider, one facility at a time. We remain steadfast in that goal and are extremely fortunate to work with a team of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and CRNAs who work diligently to ensure that the healthcare needs of underserved areas are met.

Please stay tuned to our blog throughout the week as we continue to celebrate the locum tenens industry and the impact it has on patients, communities, and the healthcare providers who choose to do locum work.
