If you’re a foreign medical professional looking to relocate and continue your practice in the United States, the transition can be complicated. Still, you want to be able to put all your knowledge and experience to work for you, and healthcare providers in this country are in high demand. So, when traveling to the U.S. for work, what do you need to know to get started?

Healthcare practice in the United States—your transition

Regardless of how long you’ve been practicing healthcare in your native country, you’ll need to transfer your credentials to the United States. This will include transferring your license to practice. You’ll also need to retake any specialized training you’ve had, if you prefer to specialize in a specific branch of your healthcare field.

Work with a niche staffing service

In your journey to the U.S., it can help to have guidance and support. Staffing agencies that specialize in working with foreign medical professionals can be an especially helpful resource since they know specifically what you’ll need. This way, your transition will be much faster and easier.
