All Star Consultants are Locum Tenens Experts
If you have spent your career in staff or long-term positions, then it is natural to have questions about the locum tenens alternative. All Star’s knowledgeable consultants are ready to provide the answers. They will explain the application and credentialing process as well as how clinicians are matched to locum tenens jobs.
All Star Works with a Vast Network of Facilities
While some individuals may contemplate seeking out moonlighting gigs or diving into the locums world as a free agent, there is a distinct advantage to teaming up with All Star—we know the facilities seeking supplemental staff and they know All Star. We are always developing relationships with administrators and hiring managers at hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare organizations across the country. We learn the staffing specifics associated with each organization, including where, when, and why a facility is seeking locum tenens professionals. This information is key to identifying how well the needs and clinical qualifications align with your expertise and personal objectives.
All Star Saves Time
The lead-up to starting your first locum tenens contract involves many steps, and your All Star consultant will be there to streamline them as much as possible. For example, if you like the idea of going to another state for your first locums job, then you will have to obtain that state’s license or licensure through the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC), if applicable. Some state boards move applications along quickly and others can take months, but All Star’s licensing specialists are well versed in what’s required, have established professional relationships with the various boards, and can act as your liaison whenever feasible. This arrangement frees up clinicians’ time so you can focus on your existing patient care responsibilities.
All Star Keeps You Informed
From finding the best locum tenens jobs to the first day of your inaugural assignment to getting ready for the next one and beyond, your All Star consultant keeps the communication flowing, so you always know where you stand in the process.
