About Kansas Locum Tenens

Kansas Locum Tenens

Kansas Locum Tenens (KLT) providers can help:

  • Cover for a physician who needs time off for personal or professional reasons.
  • Fill-in when a rural health care organization is short-staffed.
  • Give physicians a work-life balance by lessening call time.

KLT providers can practice within various medical environments including rural ERs, primary care clinics and urgent care facilities. 

Resident physicians and faculty from KU School of Medicine provide KLT primary care coverage. KLT helps strengthen and expand the rural components of residency programs and academic faculty exposure.

Become a Provider

A KLT provider must be a resident physician or faculty physician of The University of Kansas School of Medicine. KLT providers may select the assignment of their choice, and are paid competitive rates for the service.

Request Temporary Coverage

To initiate the service, a rural physician or hospital must submit a Service Order Form to Rural Health Education and Services. A KLT provider — a resident or faculty physician of KU School of Medicine — will then be requested.
