Medical Traveler Compliance & Licensure

Degrees and Certifications
Licensing and certification can be confusing. It’s hard enough keeping up with the requirements of your home state, so how do you get compliant for places you’ve never been? Degrees and certifications depend on your modality and specialty. Fusion’s compliance experts work with your recruiter and the facility, so you have all relevant credentials required for our traveling lab jobs.
Some of your compliance requirements are the same across the board, but there are others that will depend on your specialty in lab.
The three parts of compliance
- Occupational health records: Required immunizations and health examinations
- Documentation: Tax forms, insurance paperwork, and licenses
- Testing: Certifications, online trainings, and workplace safety exams
How to apply
Getting started at Fusion is an easy, 3-step process. Simply fill out an application and complete the skills checklist and drug consent forms. A recruiter will get back to you quickly!

Work with your account manager to let them know of any additional preferences, and they’ll try their hardest to find something perfect for you.
If you get a license in a compact state, are you compact licensed?
Your permanent address must be in a compact state to be compact licensed.
