LBJ Tropical Medical Center is located on American Samoa in the South Pacific. American Samoa is a lush and balmy destination with a population of 55,519 and an area of 76.8 square miles. It is a U.S. territory and utilizes U.S. currency. The way of life in American Samoa is easygoing and relaxed. Those who live here enjoy the comfort of a slower life. For those who wish to escape the "rat race" of the populous and urban areas, American Samoa is the perfect solution. Currently, LBJ Tropical Medical Center has only 65 active medical staff members. We are in search of expanding our medical staff due to the shortage of physicians/practitioners. We are actively searching in the areas of Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Nephrology, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Surgery-Orthopedics, Other-Nurse Practitioner, Other-Physician Asst, Pediatrics, Radiology, and Surgery-General.

If you are interested in maintaining a work/life balance that works for you and your family, this is an important question to ask. You will not only want to know what hours you will be expected to work, but where you will be expected to work. Some facilities have satellite clinics where you may be assigned, so even if you do not object to the late-night or early morning shift, you may have a different perspective if you need to factor in a 45-minute commute to the satellite facility. "If you're applying at a hospital that has a network, ask if there are ancillary facilities you'll rotate to," says Decker. That's true whether the work is during regular hours or on- call shifts.
