Next Travel Assignment
Adventure junkies.

Head to the Pacific Northwest. If scaling the side of mountains or rafting down white water rapids sound like good downtime for you while on assignment, here’s where you belong. Take a hike through the lush Mount Hood National Forest or visit Washington’s famed Mount Rainier.

Lovers of small-town charm.

The Southeast is perfect for you. Along the coast, you’ll find picturesque towns showcasing grand Victorian homes, plenty of Southern hospitality and reminders of a bygone era.


Take your next locum tenens assignment in the Southwest, where a number of cities rank high on culinary lists. Austin, Texas, has become a hotbed for new, exciting restaurants. Travel & Leisure also ranks San Diego, Dallas and Albuquerque as top foodie destinations.

History buffs.

For you, nowhere beats the Mid-Atlantic. Experience life on a working plantation at St. Mary’s City in Maryland, see Mount Vernon in Virginia, and you can’t miss the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, D.C.


Head to New England, an area littered with some of the best antiquing towns in the country. Visit the quaint towns of upstate New York, get a taste of Americana in Pennsylvania Dutch Country or head up the coast to Maine.

Live music aficionados.

The Mississippi Delta should be your next destination. Here’s where jazz and blues developed and the area is home to a number of museums and music halls paying homage.

Serenity seekers. 

Big Sky Country is the place for you. Wide open spaces, some of the country’s most beautiful national parks and plenty of quiet – this is where you need to be.

Locum tenens gives you the opportunity to work in the places you want. Where will you go next?
