Ultimately, locum tenens staffing is about providing healthcare where none exists. At our core, we believe our job is more than playing matchmaker between doctors and hospitals. We believe were in the business of changing peoples lives by making healthcare accessible when and where it's needed most.
Where other locums firms may see their mission as merely finding doctors who can fill a shift, we see our mission as the pursuit of quality patient care.
We are leading change: Change for physicians. Change for healthcare facilities. Change for patients.
We can assist you with finding locum tenens jobs that match your skills, schedule, and lifestyle. Whether you're interested in working across town or across the country, our friendly, talented recruiters can match you with a locum tenens assignment that's right for you.
A pioneer locum tenens physician staffing firm, Interim Physicians has provided temporary physician coverage to hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities since 1979.
Interim Physicians stays ahead of the changing world of medicine by focusing on the specialties in greatest need: Primary Care/Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Hospitalists, Emergency Medicine, General Surgery, and Psychiatry. Our headquarters are in St. Louis, Missouri, and we have regional offices in Atlanta, Dallas, and Salt Lake City.
Recently, Interim Physicians achieved Inc. 5000 status as one of the fastest-growing companies in the country and was awarded Inavero's Best of Staffing for Client and Talent.
Teufel, M.D. had a solo family medicine practice in Texas –
and wow was he busy. Too busy most of the time. The good
doctor’s practice included a heavy dose of obstetrics, so Dr.
Teufel was on call all hours of the day and night, seven days
a week, 365-days a year. He was too busy caring for patients
to take time off, and because babies and illness wait for no
man, he never took a vacation. The story was much the
same for other physicians practicing in the surrounding
towns of rural Texas.
Then Dr. Teufel had an idea. After one frantically busy night
of call, he thought, “Why not sell my practice and offer to
cover for other solo practitioners who, just like me,
desperately needed some relief?” It would read
something like this: Need a vacation or long weekend?
Let Dr. Teufel cover your practice. He’ll care for your patients!
He’ll even house sit and feed your dogs (and cats and horses).
So, Dr. Teufel sold his practice in 1980. Before long, the good
doctor had to recruit other locum tenens doctors to help him
meet the demand, and by 1982 a company called Physicians
Relief Network, better known as PRN, was born.
Over the years PRN has gone through several transitions to
become what we are today: Interim Physicians. Dr. Teufel still
serves as our medical director, which is why when we say we
understand physicians and their needs, we absolutely do.
Sure, times have changed and the lone country doctor is not
as common these days, but the need for physician shift
coverage is greater than ever.
