Locum Tenens Section

The AAEM Locum Tenens Section (LT-AAEM) empowers emergency physicians to regain their professional and fiscal autonomy through the incorporation of independent contracting. We believe that educated, confident, and business savvy emergency physicians are vital to a healthy market. LT-AAEM feels that empowered physicians will in turn have greater ability to advocate for high quality, safe provision of care in healthy workplace environments.

More About Locum Tenens Section


The AAEM Locum Tenens Section (LT-AAEM) was formed to address the unique needs of Emergency Physicians engaged or considering Locum Tenens work. The LT-AAEM will accomplish this through two main pillars; advocacy and education. Under the scope of education the section will develop educational resources and tools. Under the scope of advocacy the section will facilitate mentorship, network, and work/contract opportunities.
