About Kansas Locum Tenens

Kansas Locum Tenens

Temporary coverage services help address the shortage of physicians and specialists in rural and underserved areas of Kansas. Temporary coverage providers:

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

Health care employers, including rural hospitals, ERs, primary care clinics, private practices, and urgent care facilities are eligible to participate in temporary coverage. Services are available all across Kansas except in Douglas, Johnson, Sedgwick, and Shawnee counties.

All temporary coverage providers must have a full license issued by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts, a DEA certificate, and medical professional liability insurance.
