What are the requirements to travel as a Med Tech?
Healthcare traveler requirements vary by facility and state. As a best practice, be sure your licenses and certifications are up to date before you apply. You may need to obtain an additional license specific to the state in which you plan to work. And while not always required, Medical Technologists with at least 2 years of on-the-job are positioned better for placement and will likely be more comfortable with the responsibilities.
