Traveling Physicians

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

To learn more about what it's like to be a traveling physician, read our profile of Dr. Deepika Singh, a traveler and mother of two.

"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."

- Deepika Singh, MD, Assistant Director of Traveling Physicians

"The benefits are you get a little bit more autonomy over your schedule. We are paid a little bit higher rate of pay to compensate for our time on the road. All of our travel is paid for. Our licensing and credentialing are all paid for as a firefighter."
