When it comes to finding the perfect work-life balance, many physicians want more options. Career advancement, the desire to travel, potential burnout, and the need for flexibility can prompt doctors to look for new and exciting opportunities in their fields. Partnering with a locum tenens organization is a good solution for healthcare professionals who want to take their practice to a new level.

These are just a few of the reasons why physicians choose to partner with VISTA.

VISTA Services

VISTA is a leader in physician placement and provider staffing. To help physicians across the country take the next step in their careers, we provide:

Locum Tenens Staffing

Working locum tenens provides healthcare professionals with exciting and rewarding assignments around the country. Positions are usually short-term but may have the opportunity to become permanent. Worksites are carefully screened to ensure that they match your interests, skills, and experience. Relocation, housing, and local travel are covered with no placement fees, and compensation is excellent. In addition, we make it easy for our partners to transition from full-time to part-time, residency to practice, or from one practice to another.

Permanent Job Search

From full-time clinical and clinical teaching positions to executive, director, and department chair jobs, we tap into our network of clients to identify permanent jobs that meet your criteria and coordinate all the details at no cost to you.

We also offer group, partnership, and buy-in opportunities in public and private practice facilities. Our client base includes single-specialty and multi-specialty:

    • Private Practice Groups

    • University Medical Centers

    • Medical Schools

    • Hospitals

    • Hospital-Based Practices

Government Placements

Government locums positions allow physicians to work with veterans or active-duty military personnel and patients in underserved regions. When you partner with VISTA, you can take pride in knowing that you are providing care to the women and men who have served or are currently serving our country and those who have limited access to quality care. Governmental placement gives you the chance to help people who need you the most and those who have given so much.

Post-Residency Opportunities

Hospitals of all sizes are actively recruiting physicians, which is good news for those seeking post-residency jobs.

If you are ready to jumpstart your career, VISTA can assist you in your job search with a locum tenens or permanent position. The desire to explore different locations and practice settings before committing to a permanent position makes you an excellent candidate for the flexibility of locum tenens with VISTA. On the other hand, if you know where you want to live and the type of practice you want to settle into, VISTA can help you find a permanent post-residency position.

Advanced Practice Staffing

Not only does VISTA handle physician staffing, but nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified registered nurse anesthetists are provided with locum tenens and permanent placement opportunities as well. Temporary assignments last from a few weeks to several months in healthcare facilities and practices across the country.

Let VISTA match your unique set of skills with practices that will make the best use of your talents in an environment you want to be in. Our dedicated advanced practice team can help you determine your best options.

Licensing and Credentialing

VISTA maintains a close relationship with a medical licensing partner that gets providers licensing effectively and quickly. In addition, medical providers and boards alike appreciate our coordination of primary source credential verification, including licenses, certifications, privileges, education, training, professional liability insurance coverage, and more.

Benefits of Working Locum Tenens with VISTA
