If you’re a radiologist, radiology tech or imaging professional, have you ever considered working as a healthcare traveler?

The benefits of doing so are many. Read below for five reasons why.

  1. Travel! As a healthcare traveler, you’ll go to different hospitals and medical facilities in your city, your state or even around the country (you can choose where you’d like to work) that need your skills for assignments that last an average of 13 weeks.
  2. Paid-for housing. Healthcare travel services typically put their travelers in well-equipped apartments close to the medical facility at which they’ll be working. Many of these apartments have pools, gyms and other amenities. Travelers who prefer to find their own housing arrangements will receive a housing stipend from the travel service to help pay for accommodations.
  3. The chance to hone your people skills. As a traveler, you’ll be working with a vast variety of colleagues who live – and grew up in – areas of the country possibly quite different from your own. Their backgrounds and experiences will help you see the “way the world works” in a different light, encouraging you to expand your communication and people skills in ways you never before thought possible.
  4. The opportunity to learn new techniques. Just as you’ll learn how to get along with all manner of colleagues and patients, so you’ll get the chance to learn new radiology/imaging techniques – or relearn old ones. The wealth of training you’ll receive on the job, no matter how experienced you are, is breathtaking. You may think you know it all, but working as a traveler will show you that there are always new ways of doing things.
  5. You’ll work with new technologies. As a traveler, you’ll have the opportunity to work in large urban hospitals with the latest imaging software and equipment. You’ll also work in small suburban clinics and even tiny country healthcare offices. All will come equipped with a wide range of tools and technologies. You’ll relearn how to work with older equipment and you’ll learn how to manipulate and use the new.

Working as a travel healthcare professional will give you the chance to work with a wide variety of colleagues, patients and even equipment.
