MD/DO - Primary Care Physician (Locums)
At the crossroads for centuries...
The Community - Yuma, AZ
Yuma's geography shaped the Southwest, and because this was the
safest spot to cross the Colorado River, all roads led to Yuma for
travelers from Spanish explorers to Okies fleeing the Dust Bowl.
Today Yuma is a vibrant multicultural community that celebrates its
rich heritage, surrounded by wide-open spaces and pristine desert
scenery - all with a river running through it. With more sunshine
than any other city on earth, Yuma is a natural for all kinds of
outdoor activities, from boating to golf to off-roading, great
festivals or take a day trip south of the border. And when the sun
goes down, you'll still find plenty to do, including gaming at
three great casinos. Agriculture and Agritourism is the number one
industry in Yuma, and it is known as the winter vegetable capital
of the world. Several things account for that: Plentiful sunshine,
rich soil, ample labor and high-quality irrigation water.
