Top 5 Reasons to be a Neurophysiologist in Boston

SpecialtyCare is currently hiring for a neurophysiologist position in Boston. If you’re reading this and are already certified with some IONM experience under your belt, then read on as we take a look at the top reasons you should consider moving to Beantown. It may end up being the right locale change you didn’t know you needed.

1) All the Sports Teams

It would be impossible to talk about Beantown without mentioning sports. Red Sox fans are known to be some of the most passionate and dedicated fans of all the MLB teams. And it’s well deserved, too. The Red Sox have 9 World Series championships under their belt, including last year’s title. Speaking of champions, the Celtics have won a whopping total of 17 NBA Championships over their history. The Bruins have won 6 Stanley Cups and 25 division championships. Boston even has its own Major League Lacrosse team, the Cannons. And let’s not forget all the Harvard Crimson and Boston University Terrier teams. The city is heaven for sports lovers.


2) Annual Events

Boston has some of the best annual events in the country, so chances are you’ve heard of a few already. There’s the Cambridge Science Festival at the MIT Museum, the first of its kind in the U.S., showcasing the leading edge in science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Then there’s Harborfest every July 4 weekend, a 38-year-old tradition celebrating the city’s maritime and revolutionary history. It’s one of the largest Independence Day festivals in the nation. Boston is also home to Artweek Boston, the Boston Calling Music Festival, and one more you’ve probably heard of…

3) The Boston Marathon

The ultimate annual event by far is the Boston Marathon, a race hosted by several cities every April on Patriots’ Day. The very first marathon hosted by an American city (it started in 1897), it now attracts 30,000 registered participants each year and 500,000 spectators, making it the most viewed sporting event in New England. The record for world’s largest marathon happened in 1996 with 38,000 total entrants.

4) A History Buff’s Dream

Boston boasts its historical sites proudly, and boy are they everywhere. The U.S.S. Constitution Museum is the oldest commissioned floating ship in the world. Or maybe you’d like to check out Henry David Thoreau’s old playground out at Walden Pond to see why he made it famous in literature. And let’s not forget the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the 5th largest museum in the country with 450,000 artworks.

5) Public Transportation

Feel like ditching your car during snowy winter? Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, locally called the “T,” serves the city and its neighborhoods and suburbs with a train, bus, and subway system. This may come in handy since SpecialtyCare requires you to live within 30 minutes of the hospital you’ll be working at.
