Traveling Physicians

Through the Traveling Physician Firefighter Program, USACS emergency and hospitalist physicians have a unique ability to do the job they love and live where they choose.

Join Our Physician Firefighter Team

A solution developed by USACS to meet short term staffing needs, the Firefighter Program dispatches USACS physicians to partner hospitals throughout the country. Physician Firefighters appreciate the exciting benefits – which include flexible schedules and competitive pay – as well as the opportunity to employ best practices in a variety of settings.

Other Outstanding Benefits

Icon

No On-Call Shifts
Schedules are surprisingly predictable, as you’re never “on call.” Your shifts are determined – and mutually agreed upon – ahead of time.

Paid Travel
USACS covers your Firefighter travel expenses.

A BETTER BALANCE

Many of our traveling physicians chose the Firefighter Program so they can spend more time with their families. Others seek the freedom to live where they want, regardless of where they work.

Hear from Dr. Deepika Singh

"When I come home, the quality time is really quality. Instead of trying to cram everything a parent does before going back to work, I can sleep in, work out, and spend time with the kids."

Choose Your Home Base

With the traveling physician program, physicians live where they want. They don’t have to choose between a job they love and their preferred location. They enjoy the opportunity to work with other residency-trained, board-certified physicians who are dedicated to their specialty. When they’re working, it’s within a USACS-staffed partner hospital so they’re not constantly learning new systems. Most traveling physicians are consistently assigned to the same location.
