Traveling Physician - Firefighter Program
The Traveling Physician Firefighter Program is a unique ED staffing solution developed by USACS. Physician "firefighters" are emergency medicine residency trained, board-certified, highly experienced physicians who are dispatched to work in various emergency departments throughout the country where additional, temporary ED staffing is needed. The flexible emergency department staffing options provided by our Traveling Physician Firefighter Program provide department stability during transition and in the event of ED expansion, unexpected high volumes or prolonged physician absence.
Traveling physician firefighters are recruited for their experience and proven success; only those emergency physicians with the highest reputation in productivity, patient satisfaction and interpersonal skills are selected for this unique and rewarding career.
