This year NALTO®’s Locum Tenens Week is more than an annual celebration of healthcare providers. It’s also an opportunity to support them and the future of our industry by urging Congress to pass the Healthcare Provider Shortage Minimization Act. Currently there are over 52,000 locum tenens providers who care for 7.5 million Americans every day in our country. Locum Tenens Week offers a national stage for us to come together with a unified voice to champion this legislation.

Start now by sending a message to Congress and protect the rights of locum tenens providers to practice as independent contractors, ensuring that millions of Americans will continue to access healthcare services vital to our communities.
