A VISTA medical director and two locum tenens physicians featured in Minnesota Physician

Therus Kolff, MD, MPH, one of VISTA’s medical directors, penned the cover story for the March issue of Minnesota Physician. The article explains the nuts and bolts of locum tenens work and features two physicians who work locum tenens assignments in Minnesota through VISTA.

“The locum tenens industry in the United States was, quite literally, born of necessity,” Therus writes in the article, and he should know. He established the first locum tenens company in the nation in 1979 after a stint with a nonprofit organization that was formed to develop innovative solutions to rural health care issues.
