What To Consider On Your First Travel Assignment

The life of travel healthcare provider can be an amazing opportunity! But before you take this commitment, you need to consider the options of where you are going. There are so many factors to consider, including trying to figure out where you feel comfortable to live, what you want to get out of your career, what each area can offer you in your free time, ect. The KPG Healthcare team will help guide you through all of these decisions and be your personal consultant to guide you throughout the entire process. We want to help you weigh your options and make the best decisions for your career goals – we’re here for you every step of the way!


North or south? Coastal or inland? City life or mountain area? All of these preferences are important to consider when choosing your travel assignment. This all comes down to where you feel comfortable living and where you will thrive! Understanding how you feel in certain weathers and environments is extremely important in your decision as well.


There are many options you can look into for housing as a healthcare professional. From finding short-term housing rentals to other options such as Airbnb’s, finding that best suits you is key. If your term is shorter, extended hotels are an option if that can work as well. Doing extensive research on your options is vital. Because you may be traveling to a very distant location, many times you aren’t able to meet the landlord or visit the housing prior to you moving in, and this can be scary for many people. It is important to do as much in-depth research as possible.


The benefits that come with being a travel healthcare professional can be a huge (and sometimes overwhelming) part of your decision. Luckily, there are some amazing benefits that come with moving your life. Some of these include better pay, discovering new places and strengthening new skills. Salary tends to be a big decision maker in these situations, especially because some places have great demand for travel healthcare professionals and compensate accordingly. Another obvious benefit is the ability to travel and find somewhere new that could capture your heart. This new area and new hospital can help  you to find new skills you didn’t know you were capable of and expand the areas you previously specialized in.

Length of contract

Choosing your length of stay can be a difficult part of travel health care. Research shows that the average length of stay is around 13 weeks long. However, there are ranges of times that can be shorter or longer depending on your preference. There are also instances where if you enjoy the hospital you are at, you have the option for extended stay. There has been an increase in need for travel healthcare professionals, so many companies are willing to work with the you about the length of your contract.


As travel health professionals, you all have your own specialties that are needed in different hospitals. Finding your perfect fit is, as mentioned before, a very personal decision. This could be based on area you want to live in, the type of specialty you are in or if you are new to your healthcare profession. There are a variety of hospitals available, some more high end, and others in areas that cater to low-income communities. The choice comes down to what is important  to you, and which locations will allow you to continue to grow professionally and personally.

What you can do on your free time

Your free time can be a very important part of your final decision. Your free time is exactly that- your own time. If you are relocating, you will want to make sure that there is plenty for you to do during days off in your new town. So it’s up to you to find out what you like best! Are you more outdoorsy? Do you like the city life? Are you adventurous or a homebody? This all will help you decide where you want to be located.

Finding your place as a travel healthcare professional can be a difficult decision if you don’t know what to look for. There is so much to consider when choosing a new life, but it can lead to something so special and rewarding. From what kind of hospital you wish to work at, to what your specialty is, to what you like to do in your free time, there are many important factors to consider! Let KPG Healthcare help you find the opportunity of your dreams today!
