Good news for all you IONM specialists out there. SpecialtyCare has an open neurophysiologist position in sunny Orlando, Florida. For those of you with IONM experience looking for a locale change, this is definitely something you should look into (especially if you’re tired of the cold). Let’s check out what Orlando has to offer.
All The Theme Parks You Can Handle
We’ll cut right to the chase. The biggest draw Orlando has is its theme parks. Nowhere else in the country offers so many themed attractions. Not Chicago, not Vegas, not even Los Angeles. While L.A. has a Universal park and Disneyland, Orlando offers even bigger versions of those parks, and all age groups are covered.
Let us start with the House of Mouse. An American icon since 1971, Walt Disney World Resort was built to supplement Disneyland to provide the same type of entertainment on the East coast. It’s comprised of four well-known theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. It has two water parks, golf courses, a camping resort, and the outdoor shopping center Disney Springs. It’s home to a whopping 27 themed resort hotels and 9 non-Disney hotels.

Then there’s Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Both play host to the insanely popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Diagon Alley is located in Universal Studios while Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmeade are located in Islands of Adventure. Both are connected by an actual Hogwarts Express train. Universal also puts on Halloween Horror Nights every September through October, the biggest haunted attraction in the United States. Tickets go on sale many months in advance.
Speaking of insanely popular, Disney World just opened Galaxy’s Edge, a 14 acre Star Wars-themed area, and they’re currently building a Star Wars luxury hotel known as Galactic Cruiser. It’s scheduled to open in 2021 at Epcot Resort. Orlando also has SeaWorld, Discovery Cove, Volcano Bay, and Crayola Experience.
Gorgeous Weather and the Beach
There’s a reason Orlando was chosen for all those theme parks. The weather doesn’t get much better than Central Florida. While it can get steamy in the Summer months, it spends most of the year in a mild comfort zone. For 8 months, the average high is between 72 and 88 degrees, and the low rarely drops below the 50s at night.
Orlando enjoys an average of 233 sunny days a year, well above the national average of 205. The climate is absolutely perfect for the beach all year round. The Atlantic coast is just an hour’s drive from the city, and the Gulf of Mexico is about 90 minutes to the west. Plenty of options are on the table with Daytona Beach, Vero Beach, Cocoa Beach, New Smyrna Beach, and Port Canaveral all within two hours.
