New ACGME regulations will affect Locum Tenens coverage

Attention Kansas Locum Tenens clients!

New ACGME regulations will affect locum tenens coverage beginning July 1:

• Off-site accommodations for providers are required. Sleep rooms and other accommodations on hospital property are no longer allowed.

• A back-up physician must be available when using resident physicians to provide locum tenens. Resident physicians are now allowed only 80 hours to provide services each week, which includes both resident duties and locum tenens.

We will work with you and the resident on each locum tenens coverage to put a plan in place.

Please contact Andee Ellis,, ph: 913-588-1228 for more information.
