The Most In-Demand Locum Tenens Jobs of 2023

As the healthcare industry continues to grow, so has the demand for locum tenens staffing. As a result of increased patient needs and physician shortages throughout the world, healthcare providers are doing their best to meet those demands by utilizing specially trained locum tenens physicians—temporary doctors who work on-call or in lieu of full time staff.

But what specialties have become most popular when it comes to filling these important roles? In this blog post, we take a close look at what we expect to be the most sought-after jobs for locum tenens professionals in 2023.

Anesthesia Providers

Locum tenens anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists are highly coveted. 

With little supply and huge demand, their expertise and experience is sought after by a variety of medical facilities, including outpatient surgical centers, hospitals, pain management programs, and more.


Hospitalists are also in high demand as they provide care for both acute and chronic conditions.

They typically work rotating shifts in hospital settings, providing comprehensive medical attention to patients while helping coordinate their treatment with other specialists.


The pandemic has taken a massive toll on global mental health, leading to an unprecedented rise in demand for locum tenens psychiatrists. These skilled professionals are capable of working across multiple settings – from hospitals and clinics to private practices – utilizing their expertise and knowledge to provide the highest quality care possible for those who suffer from mental illness or emotional distress.
