Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and physicians.

There are many reasons why you should choose to work with Wilderness Medical Staffing. From our top-notch medical providers to our 24/7 support, Wilderness Medical Staffing is hands-down the best locum tenens company to work with. Most importantly, we are a local company that truly understands rural and remote healthcare.

This depends on what your need is, how long you need a practitioner for, and how much lead time you give us for a particular staffing need. In general, the more lead time we have, the better we are able to get a practitioner that will fit your exact specifications. However, Wilderness Medical Staffing has a large database of medical providers and we get to work immediately once you have communicated your staffing need to us, no matter what situation you may be in. We will work diligently until your staffing need has been met, while maintaining communication the entire way.

Our rates depend on what type of practitioner you need (e.g. physician, nurse practitioner), how skilled the practitioner needs to be (e.g. trauma skills, primary care only), and what the requirements are for a given position, including length of an assignment and duties involved. No matter what, we will always find the most qualified practitioner based off of your needs and preferences, while striving to find a rate that is fair to both you and the practitioner.
