Your personal locum tenens advisors

Covelo Direct is a boutique locum tenens staffing firm offering direct hire options for in-demand specialties, including emergency medicine, cardiology, primary care, psychiatry, anesthesiology, and more.


Concierge solutions for discerning partners

With 15 years of experience in healthcare staffing and more than 40 years of combined locum tenens experience, Covelo Direct’s expert team delivers top-tier providers to discerning healthcare facilities.

With our locum tenens and direct hire expertise, we offer discerning facilities access to a curated network of exceptional physicians and advanced practice providers. Each match we make is rooted in a profound understanding of your unique needs, reinforced by our commitment to personalized attention and tailored solutions.

With our dedicated team of experienced professionals by your side, you can trust us to provide the highest caliber of medical professionals in a reliable, tailored, and effortless manner that’s far from ordinary. In an industry where quality and trust can’t always be assumed, a truly first-class locum tenens experience is possible when you work with Covelo Direct.

How is Covelo Direct different from Covelo Group?

Covelo Direct offers locum tenens staffing services for physicians and advanced practitioners. We also provide permanent placements, also called “direct hire,” for licensed healthcare positions.

Our sister company, Covelo Group, provides temporary staffing services in various healthcare settings and school systems for non-physician licensed, unlicensed, and administrative healthcare roles.
