The USACS Traveling Physician Firefighter Program provides emergency physicians a unique opportunity to live exactly where they want, as well as incredibly flexible scheduling usually not available in more traditional EM roles.
Many of our traveling physicians have chosen the Firefighter Program so that they can actually spend longer stretches of time with family, and live in places where there may not necessarily be a group or a practice setting they like. The benefits include:
- Extreme flexibility in schedule
- No on call shifts
- Paid travel
