Is there a minimum commitment?

Not at all. We believe in clinicians creating a healthy work-life balance. Your time, your work. You define it.

How do I get paid?

All your payments are directly deposited into your bank account.

What is the average pay?

All job postings on the Protean site will have the pay rates and benefits mentioned. You will also have the opportunity to negotiate your pay with the team or employers. As a rule of thumb, locum tenens can expect anywhere from 25 – 50% more than that of a permanent job.

Protean offers background and drug screening for candidates as per the client’s requirements.

How about credentialing?

The protean team will help with credentialing.

Protean is completely free for clinicians.
