In the private sector, you might have to change agencies two or three times — and complete all the associated paperwork each time — to get where you want to go. VA has facilities in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories, as well as a streamlined credentialing process.
Because VA is a single integrated system, our Locum Tenens Program is the only place you will find consistent patient care delivery methods and information technologies at each new assignment. We have a comprehensive orientation program in Phoenix that teaches you everything you need to know about our award-winning Computerized Patient Record System, performance measures, and the VA primary care environment. From there, you'll enjoy the variety of Locum Tenens life without the headaches that usually accompany changing hospital systems.
At VA, patient care is not a business decision. We are committed to providing Veterans with the Best Care possible — primarily because they deserve it, but also because it’s the most efficient way of containing costs across our vast system. So, our focus has to be on keeping Veterans healthy and achieving the most positive patient outcomes possible. When you join our Locum Tenens team, you’ll find that VA doctors spend more time treating patients and no time managing a practice. They aren’t hassled by insurance denials, and we make sure they have consistently equitable panel sizes.
The VA Locum Tenens Program is run by the Department of Veterans Affairs. There are no middlemen involved to take a slice of your salary or delay your pay and travel reimbursements. Our full-time Locum Tenens professionals earn premium Government employment and travel benefits.
