From seasoned physicians ready to take on leadership roles to surgeons who split their time between locum tenens and volunteer work in Africa, the physicians who work with VISTA are an interesting lot.

Our goal is to enable physicians in a variety of medical specialties to live the lives they desire as they make a transition from training to practice, into their first great job, into their next great job, or from full-time to part-time work.
