Search Online for Locum Tenens

  • Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Search, Click, Research, and Apply! Consilium Staffing announces the addition of "Opportunity Search", a new interactive online feature allowing physicians to search for locum tenens opportunities by specialty and geography directly from the company's homepage, Just one more way the company is addressing the imminent physician shortage and continuing to be "your partner in locum tenens".

In November 2011, Consilium Staffing created the 'perfect shelter' for the 'perfect storm' with the launch of their company website to positive reviews. Matt Baade, Vice President of Client Sales at Consilium Staffing, added that "overall our website feedback was great, though the one improvement that was consistently requested was access to the open positions. Within a week of receiving that feedback our web development team started to create this new interactive feature."

Applying for a locum tenens opportunity has never been easier. Information regarding physician specialties, geographic locations, practice settings and benefits provided by the company are constantly updated allowing physicians, facilities and Consilium Staffing to stay connected.

According to Kyle Etter, Vice President of Account Management, "Our primary goal is to create a partnership with our clients and providers. This new feature furthers that goal by giving our providers easier and quicker access to our open positions, which in turn helps us meet the needs of our facility clients more efficiently."

Development and improvement are fundamental in providing a high level of customer service, something that Baade maintains is one Consilium Staffing's core values. "To be the leader in the locum tenens environment means not only to provide quality customer service, but to be open to evolve to meet the needs of our clients and providers," said Baade. "Currently, there are several more technological enhancements in development allowing us to do just that. This is just the beginning."

The term, "locum tenens" is a Latin phrase that means to "hold the place of." Consilium Staffing assists hospitals, primary care offices, urgent care centers, correctional institutions, and other healthcare facilities, when those facilities are under-staffed by partnering with physicians, nurse practitioners, and/or physician assistants who are able to provide coverage on a temporary or contract basis.
