Tacoma – known as the “City of Destiny” – offers a down-to-earth vibe, incredible outdoor adventures and a wide array of amenities (there are 50 parks, miles of shoreline, amazing mountain views and great museums), but it’s also renowned as one of the most livable and walkable communities in America.
Sitting on the banks of Puget Sound, the city offers convenient access to Mount Rainier – which is the highest mountain in Washington and an active volcano!
Tacoma’s four universities have created an urban feel and neighborhoods that are vibrant, diverse and welcoming. And at only a 45-minute drive from Seattle, you can enjoy all the excitement of the city at a much lower cost of living, plus day trips to Portland and Vancouver.
Climate-wise, the city offers mild weather with 141 days of sunshine per year, temperatures between 37 and 77 degrees, and an annual rainfall of only 41 inches (just a bit higher than the US average of 38 inches per year).
As a hospitalist, you'll have the freedom to create your own schedule, and you’ll never be on call – so you and your family have ample time to enjoy all the incredible cultural and outdoor recreation opportunities Washington state has to offer, along with:
- Competitive compensation
