New Survey Finds an Increasingly Flexible Physician Workforce

AMN Healthcare’s 2022 Survey of Locum Tenens Staffing Trends indicates that 88% of hospitals, medical groups, and other healthcare facilities used locum tenens physicians, nurse practitioners (NPs), and/or physician assistants (PAs) sometime in the prior 12 months, primarily to address staffing shortages.  The survey suggests that physicians are part of an increasingly flexible healthcare workforce that can deliver care when and where they are needed most.

Top 3 Locum Tenens Providers:

  • Anesthesia providers, including anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), were the most utilized type of locum tenens healthcare professionals last year, the survey indicates, suggesting that procedures requiring anesthesia have rebounded from COVID-19 related lows.
  • Hospitalists were the second most utilized type of locum tenens provider, due to the large volume of hospital inpatient work created by COVID-19.
  • Psychiatrists were third on the list, as COVID-19 has increased the incidence of mental health issues nationwide and has highlighted the dearth of behavioral health professionals that preceded the pandemic.

THA members can request a free copy of the complete survey by contacting Kurt Mosley at kurt.mosley@amnhealthcare.com.
