    Default Career in Radiology

    As I see that you have been considering a career in radiology then you will be happy to know that there is a wide variety of options within this field. There are many options regarding where you perform your job as well as a number of different areas of radiology for you to specialize in. Some radiologists even travel in their job giving them a variety of experience and an incredible journey.

    There are many areas of the country that have a shortage of radiology technicians so it is a field that is in demand. Many hospitals around the country have had to resort to hiring outside staff to perform their radiology work. Radiologists can be employed by an agency and then hospitals around the country will call the agency when they require a radiologist. Then the agency will contact one of their radiologists on their records and send them to the job where they may stay on tenure for around three months at a time. You can travel all over the country when you work for such an agency.

    When working at a hospital as a temporary radiologist you will perform all radiology tasks such as sonograms and X-rays and any other duties required. If you would be interested in a traveling radiology position then you are in luck because there is a lot of demand for this type of work. It is easier to find a traveling radiology job than to find a permanent, full-time radiology job. The following information will help put you on the right track to finding a traveling radiology job.

    Basic Requirements

    The requirements for a traveling radiologist are similar to those of a typical radiologist. You will need to have completed a degree in radiology and have some medical school background. You will complete your training in accordance with the type of radiology that you want to do. The license requirements for radiologists may vary from state to state and as a traveling radiologist you must be fully licensed to perform your duties.

    As well as having the required qualifications, you will need to be willing to work away from home, sometimes for months at a time. Many agencies are happy to place you in areas where you wish to work. Because you may be traveling a long distance there isn’t much point traveling too far for a one week job, so most jobs do tend to last around three months or so. Some contracts may last longer than three months so you need to be prepared to be away from home for long periods at a time.

    You will also need to be adaptable to be a traveling radiologist. Different hospitals will have different staff, different equipment and possibly different procedures, so you need to be flexible and willing to learn and follow each hospitals procedures. You need to be able to handle various situations with skill, be independent and show initiative to apply your knowledge in unfamiliar situations.

    There are several resources available for those looking for radiology jobs. You can begin by searching the internet and you will find many websites that have information on agencies and even some sites that offer job postings. You can browse the internet and then narrow the websites down to those that operate in your area.

    If you find agencies in your area but they aren’t listing any job openings, you should still contact them to ask if they are hiring or not. They may take your details so that they can give you a call if any positions become available. Look through your local phone book to find radiology training centres and radiology centers in your area and they may be able to refer you to a traveling radiology agency.

    When you put your name down with an agency, you don’t need to feel as though you must accept every job that they offer you. Where you travel may have an impact on what kind of experience you will have and also on how your job advances. A good radiology agency will work together with you to find the best locations to suit you and your career.
