Company

In the early 1990s, Australia and New Zealand had an urgent need for doctors. A need we were born to fill in the form of an unprecedented business. Since then, we’ve successfully matched thousands of doctors with clients around the world. Today, we place doctors in New Zealand, Australia, Guam, the Caribbean, Canada, China, and of course, the US. Historically, we’ve had doctors in Singapore and the United Arab Emirates — and we regularly expand into new countries. This worldwide reach means that if a location is placeable, we’re probably there. And it makes us unique among locum tenens agencies.

Our reach is global. But our service is personal. And our size allows us to move with both the speed and attention to detail our doctors and clients deserve. At the same time, we’re part of the CHG family of companies, which gives us the resources and support of the largest organization in locum tenens. Although we operate independently, we’re backed by a powerhouse of resources to ensure everything goes to plan.
