A locum doctor is a doctor who works in the place of the regular doctor when that doctor is absent, or when a hospital/practice is short-staffed. These vacancies are called locum jobs.

Due to Australia’s large land area and relatively small population, many regional hospitals rely on locum doctors to full-fill there short term staffing needs.
