*KLT+ is a temporary coverage/moonlighting program that offers coverage for rural and urban underserved health care organizations in Kansas.

KLT+ uses practicing physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical mission providers, and resident physicians to fill coverage requests.

We're your one-stop-shop for temporary coverage in Kansas!

Kansas Locum Tenens (KLT) services help address the shortage of physicians in rural and underserved areas by connecting providers with rural and underserved Kansas health care employers that need temporary medical coverage.

Resident physicians, fellows, and faculty from all campuses and programs at the University of Kansas School of Medicine are eligible to provide Primary Care (family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, and medicine-pediatrics) temporary coverage through the KLT program. KLT services are available to rural and urban underserved health care employers all across Kansas. 

KLT provides:

  • Primary care coverage for a physician who needs time off for personal or professional reasons, or when an organization is short-staffed.
  • The means to strengthen and expand the rural components of residency and fellowship programs and the perspectives of the academic faculty.
  • Supplemental income for a KU resident or fellow by earning competitive, fair market pay for service while still in training.
  • A great recruitment and retention tool for rural health care organizations.
